André Villers: My Friend Picasso
Marketa Tomanova
2014 - 63 min - HD - Couleur - France

English summary
André Villers takes photographs, develops them, enlarges them, draws, cuts, glues, assembles, replaces, takes out, rips off and staples back together…
Aged 21, he discovered photography at the sanatorium in Vallauris where he was hospitalized for several years, suffering from bone tuberculosis. Two years later, André befriended Pablo Picasso who also bought the young photographer his very first own camera. The two later worked together on a poetic cut-out album called "Diurnes".
Through Picasso, André has met some of the greatest artists of the 20th century. André has photographed Chagall, Dali, Miró, Buñuel, Fellini, Brassaï, Cocteau, Prévert, Gainsbourg, Le Corbusier, Léger, Picasso, of course, and many more but he has never boasted about it. Throughout his life, he kept a low profile, even if his photographs are known worldwide.
Today, André still remains creative even though he is already 83 years young. One of the last great photographer and artist who is waiting to be discovered.
