Lartigue is well-known for capturing the dreamy essence of the early 1900s before WWII. I'm most fond of Lartigue's photographs of his wife, Bibi. I think that his love and fascination with her translates through the hundreds of photographs that he took of her throughout their twelve-year marriage. He also has many photographs of his model girlfriend Renée Perle which I also like.

I found a video of an episode on Jacques-Henri Lartigue from 1983 of a BBC series called Master Photographers.
