We’re fans of Frank Horvat’s work. His photographs of the seamier side of Paris nightlife in the 1956 are glorious. He tells us:
“I was lucky. In 1950 – aged 22 – I was a young man who had given up his dreams of becoming a writer or a painter, but without having acquired anything like a proper profession. By 1960, I had travelled for two years in Asia, as a photojournalist, lived and worked in Paris, London and New York, as a fashion photographer, and become reasonably well known in the small world of photography.”
Horvat’s luck and talent take us back to post-war London right before the 1960s swung in…
