Statement from Raymond Depardon on the back of print „White Sands, New Mexico, USA. 1982.“
„It’s the month of November: the temperature is mild, the sun is welcome.
I stand in front of this family at lunch, at the foot of magnificent white sand dunes.“
Raymond Depardon, born in France in 1942, began taking photographs on his family farm in Garet at the age of 12. Apprenticed to a photographer optician in Villefranche-sur-Saône, he then left for Paris in 1958.
He joined the Dalmas agency in Paris in 1960 as a reporter, and then in 1966, he co-founded the Gamma agency, reporting from all over the world. From 1974 to 1977, as a photographer and filmmaker, he covered the kidnap of a French ethnologist, François Claustre, in northern Chad. Alongside his photographic career, he also began to make documentary films: 1974, Une Partie de Campagne and San Clemente.
