Catherine Verret-Vimont has put together an exhibition of 95 photos capturing the likes of Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert, Gérard Depardieu, Jean Reno, Danièle Thompson, Costa-Gavras, Barbet Schroeder, Bulle Ogier, Benoît Jacquot, Bruno Dumont, Olivier Assayas, Claire Denis, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Claude Lelouch, Patrice Chereau, Arnaud Desplechin, Xavier Beauvois, Lambert Wilson, Jeanne Moreau and so many other French actors and filmmakers we all know so well.
Acclaimed William Klein comments: “Catherine Verret has been for years the ambassador of French cinema in the US, she has also been the photographic eye of Paris in New York. She has not only captured the most delicious and peaceful invasion of great French actors and directors but created an essential family album with everyone we admired and loved.”
