Lucien Clergue

Lucien Clergue (Arles, 1934 – Nîmes, 2014) re-elaborated the feminine nude, working extensively on chiaroscuro, so as to obtain a classical kind of sculptural geometry. Most celebrated are – in the
framework of his wide-ranging career – the so-called Zebra Nudes series, where bodies are formally dissected yet enhanced by the progressive movement of graceful parallel lines created by lights and shades neatly “carved” onto the skin by venetian blinds. He was the founder, in 1969, of the well-known “Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie” of Arles.
