Jean Chamoux (1925 - 2007) was a French photographer who started his career during World War II. He settled in Paris in 1947 and worked actively until the 1980s. He did a number of coverages in France and in the Middle East. Although he worked together with Robert Doisneauand Edouard Boubat, a famous photographer, he has always remained very discreet and has only exhibited his works once in the near suburbs of Paris.He was one of the first to take colored photographs on a wide scale and in big format print (4"x 5" and 5"x17"m) and the first to process his proper color films in Paris.
The photos I chose by him have very strong horizontal lines. The first picture of the two school girls have them the most. The pictures are rather simple but I feel they express what we were asked to find very well.
