Pierre Jamet, a humanist photographer, but also a successful singer, experienced, Rolleiflex slung over his shoulder, the glorious hours of the Front Populaire. With the encouragement of Léo Lagrange, he founded a youth hostel in Belle-Ile-en-mer where talented and enthusiastic young people rubbed shoulders, such as Mouloudji, Daniel Fillipachi or Dina Vierny. Pierre Jamet thus documented this period of freedom, with revolutionary accents, with a rare sensitivity that reveals to us moments of joyful fraternity, punctuated by music. At the end of the First World War, this photographer then participated in the emergence of a new look at reality and daily life; soon followed by Robert Doisneau, Willy Ronis, Georges Martin and of course Henri Cartier-Bresson.
