Vintage Photos of Jean Seberg on the set of Bonjour Tristesse (1958)

Bonjour Tristesse (“Hello, Sadness”) is a 1958 British-American Technicolor film in CinemaScope, directed and produced by Otto Preminger from a screenplay by Arthur Laurents based on the novel of the same title by Françoise Sagan.

A Guardian piece in 2012 described it as:

“an example of Hollywood’s golden age, and both its star and its famously tyrannical director are ripe for rediscovery.”

The film stars Jean Seberg as Cécile, a decadent young girl who lives with her rich playboy father, Raymond (David Niven). Anne (Deborah Kerr), a mature and cultured friend of Raymond’s late wife, arrives at Raymond’s villa for a visit.

Cécile is afraid that Anne will disrupt the undisciplined way of life that she has shared with her father, so she does her best to break up the relationship with Anne.

Very Sophisticated Fashion Photography by Georges Dambier

Georges Dambier did not conform to the standard technique of taking fashion pictures, with models standing emotionless and seemingly indifferent to the camera. Instead, he showed models smiling, laughing and often in action. His models were surrounded by local people in a market place in Marrakech, or in a village in Corsica, or – and above all – in his beloved Paris.
