22 Works, René Maltête Humorous Photographs!

René Maltête was born on 8 May 1930 at Lamballe (Côtes-d'Armor, France).

He started taking pictures at 16. In 1951 he went to Paris to become an assistant director. Times were tough, and from this point until 1973 he would have to do a great variety of menial work to survive in addition to his profession.

In 1960, his first book, Paris des rues et des chansons, it came out in three editions, and 35,000 copies were sold. Other books would follow.

Photographer, poet, humorist, early ecologist, Maltête captured amusing situations in everyday life. Funny, poetic and tender, his pictures were published in numerous magazines worldwide, and many exhibitions contributed to popularize his work.

In 1973 Maltête moved to Dreux, where he and friends organized "Art en Dreux"; seven years later he would also founded a poetry festival there.

René Maltête died on 8 November 2000. More on René Maltête
