Publisher: Chêne
Publication date: 2008
Print length: 512 pages
Language: French
Price Range:
Photographer of idols in the 60s by collaborating on the magazine Salut les copains - which will remain the hallmark of the yé-yé years - founded by his friend Daniel Filipacchi, celebrities since 1990 by sharing his activity between the press and the reports produced for music and publishing houses and director of more than 600 commercials, documentaries and several feature films, Jean-Marie Périer has never stopped playing with images.

Through a gallery of more than 400 portraits, made between 1960 and today and presented chronologically, alternately naive, poetic, funny, moving, surprising, tender, fraternal, or staged in a disheveled way, the photographer invites us here to find or discover all these celebrities under his eye always cheerful, enthusiastic and spontaneous. Angelic Françoise Hardy against the backdrop of the Eiffel Tower, Sylvie Vartan as a schoolteacher, Johnny Halliday in the James Dean style, Jacques Dutronc and his vampires, Etienne Daho in a parking lot under a tanning lamp ..., each photo is a surprise, a spectacle of a very short time, and is presented as a hymn to freedom.

The author's short texts accompany each photograph, and highlighting here and there some anecdotes or sometimes revealing a subtle intimacy between the photographer and his subject, complete to make this book a phantasmagorical and magical panorama of hundreds of artists and from several eras, which can only dazzle us and make us smile.
