Photographer, Visual Artist
Who is Jean Chamoux?
He settled in Paris in 1947 and worked actively until the 1980s. He did a number of coverages in France and in the Middle East. Although he worked together with Robert Doisneau and Edouard Boubat in particular, he has always remained very discreet and has only exhibited his works once in the near suburbs of Paris.
He nevertheless took photographs of such various figures as Blaise Cendrars, Jean Cocteau, Paul Fort, Lino Ventura, Habib Bourguiba or Madame René Coty in their homes, and was regarded as a first rank photographer in fashion and industry. More particularly he was one of the first to take coloured photographs on a wide scale and in big format print and the first to process his proper colour films in Paris.
