For 60 years, Jean Dieuzaide has photographed everything, from men to machines, buildings from all times to nourishing plants, from the ground and from the air. His life and his work are inseparable, each has fueled the other.
Most of his collection entered the Toulouse Archives in 2016. An exceptional collection, it offers a unique testimony to the second half of the 20th century in France and southern Europe. With nearly 500,000 documents, it is in the process of being described, indexed and digitized, so that the contents are accessible to all.
