The book is charming. The greeting cards of Denis Brihat to his friends for 50 years and their answers. According to Solange, Denis’ wife “In 1958, Denis left Paris, and decided to do the photography he wanted to do.”
So he leaves his Parisian contacts, the Parisian life to end up in a shed, completely isolated in Bonnieux. Frédéric Lecloux writes: “Since Denis is a social animal, he takes the tradition of New Year’s greetings cards to remind his friends that he is still alive.” He makes an original photograph for the occasion. This is the flame: this card opens the book, followed by photographs of candles, the fire of friendship that does not want to go out, the fire of hospitality offered, the symbolism is elementary but limpid. ! Write! Come! ”
And they will come … Sudre, Doisneau, Ronis, Boubat, Dieuzaide. And then many others, friends, collectors etc … Many of them framed these cards and covered walls with Denis greeting cards.
