Printed 2015Paper Size: 30 x 40 cm Edition of 20photograph is signed and numbered by the artist.Shooting the rooftops of Paris for Une femme est une femme (A Woman is a Woman; dir. Jean-Luc Godard, 1961), December 1960. Here, Raymond Cauchetier and cameraman Raoul Coutard, both former army veterans of the Indochina War, capture each other on film in a sort of cross-fire as Jean-Luc Godard looks on. Jean Seberg's new husband, Romain Gary, was also an army veteran. Cauchetier's time spent in the Air Force was a defining moment not only in his photographic career, but also in his personal life, and Cauchetier recalls of Seberg: 'She introduced me to Romain Gary, and we became friends, not because of film or literature, but because we were both former officers of the Air Force.
