I remember very well of my first meeting with Albert MONIER. I was impresed to see the author of a very famous picture taken in the fifties. Two homeless nearby Notre Dame of Paris.

It is like discovering an unknown land we have always dream about. When we went with a friend of mine to interview him in the center of France we felt jumping 30 years backward. We made a film of that journey. Some extracts of it will be on the net.

He explained us what was the postcard photographer work in those times.

He used to write that the postcard should play the same role with photography than the record with music.

This is probably the most famous Albert MONIER's photography.

In 1953 this picture was known worldwide through massive sales of postcards. He could then be compared to the king of postcards YVON.
