The classic "Photofile" series brings together the best work of the worlds greatest photographers.
Each book contains a selection of the photographers most important and representative images, plus an introduction and a bibliography.
Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894-1986) received his first camera in 1902 and soon began to fill album after album with photographs of family friends.
He went on to capture the world on film, but always recorded what fascinated him most: people in motion and objects in flight.
The more than sixty photographs collected here of car and bicycle races, early aeroplanes, enormous kites and, of course, his family radiate the intimacy and sheer exuberance he brought to his art.
