Book Description 
This photographic retrospective of the renowned contemporary photographer includes-and looks beyond-his famous Picasso portraits and sumptuous nudes to explore the lifelong obsessions and passions of a brilliant artist.  
This collection of almost one hundred and fifty images traces the dynamic continuum that is Clergue's career: from the mysterious gypsies of his childhood, and his friendships with Picasso, Cocteau and other avant-garde personalities, to breathtaking images of sea and sand, riveting nudes, and searing portraits. Together these images, some of them never published before, create a showcase of Clergue's decades-long fascination with life, death, and the "mysterious in between." This volume also includes a biography that highlights Clergue's accomplishments as an artist, an essay on his ventures into surrealism, and a series of correspondence between Clergue and Jean Cocteau.
