Souvenirs of Anne Clergue


My first memories of the Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie d’Arles date back to 1976, for the 7th edition. I was 13 and already working in the administrative offices with Evelyne Arlaud, Françoise Riss and Marijo Justamond. Then I began working in the press offices with Catherine Philippot at the Nord Pinus Hotel. I met all the photographers, they were so nice to me, the craziest was Jan Saudek. The nicest was Guy le Querrec during the July 14th celebration, we danced together and I knocked over his Leica, I was terrified, but he kept smiling, the Leica is unbreakable, he had seen worse! With Peter Beard, Montmajour in my vision, it was magical. I met Discovery pilot Brewster Shaw who was invited to present NASA pictures. I posed for Franco Fontana, Jean-François Bauret, Ralph Gibson, Helmut Newton. I was on stage at the Théatre Antique for the New York fashion designer Sao, when a riot broke out! The screen was ripped by a flash thrown by a photographer, furious at the idea that he should have to watch a fashion show at the RIP.
