Martine Franck 1938 – 2012 RIP
It’s hard living in the shadow of a celebrity spouse, let alone one of the world’s best known and highly esteemed photographers, Henri Cartier-Bresson. Like Lee Krasner living with and putting up with her uber-famous husband Jackson Pollack, Martine Franck, who died August 16th (1938 -2012) was most always called The Wife of Henri Cartier -Bresson. But she is in her own right as good a photographer as her husband, it’s just that so few people know about her work. Watch a Magnum slideshow of her various subject albums here.
