We all know the films of Agnès Varda—her beaches, her daguerreotypes, her mockumentary, her Black Panthers—but we are less familiar with her photography, even though it was thanks to this work that she was first noticed in the ‘50s with her portraits of Gérard Philippe. By digging into the vast archives at the media library at the Rencontres d’Arles, we found a real nugget. Agnès Varda, elegant, talking about her view camera photographs shot during her trip to China and Cuba in the ‘50s.
