Yves Manciet - Reporter-photographer

A 52’ documentary directed in 2014 by Miguel Sanchez-Martin

Born in Bordeaux and a life-long resident of Périgeux, Yves Manciet is the last living photographer to have covered the first Cannes Film Festival in 1946, a time when everything seemed possible.

During the war, some had acquired a taste for taking risk. Indeed, it was something like those conditions of come-what may riskiness that carefree youth of an enterprising nature would seek ways of recreating in the post-war era. Such was the environment that shaped the emergence of Yves Manciet as a photographer.

Yves Manciet photographed an extraordinary wide range of persons of consequence including actors, poets, philosophers and painters, immortal men and women whose spirit, beauty or energy were rendered larger-than-life by his photography. His name is certainly not as familiar to us as others such as Capa, Willy Ronis, Doisneau, Depardon and other photographers of world renown. Nevertheless, some of his world-famous photographs are a testament to not only his talent but the lasting importance of his work.
