Cannes, France: Alain Cinquini, [ca. 1987]. Color Photographic Slide, 5 x 5 cm. VG.
Alain Cinquini (1941 - 2021) made his first photo of stars. It was on the advice of a friend that he finally made contact with the Gamma agency. The start of a great career. In a quarter of a century, Alain Cinquini took between 80,000 and 100,000 shots of some of the greatest stars, becoming one of the essential independent photographers in the south of France and Monaco. He will maintain privileged relations with movie stars and artists such as Armand or César, among others. In short, an exemplary career during which he will never steal an image and will never violate the privacy of his "clients". Quite the opposite of the paparazzi as we understand it today: “I have a way of working, with respect for people, probably because I was brought up that way. Some of my colleagues sometimes wondered how I managed to get certain photos. It was simply because I was seen well, that I was doing my job correctly. And with correction… Having a good reputation, in that environment, matters, it opens doors. » Sebastien KUHN
