Serge Reggiani by Bruno de Monès

One of the portraits in the exhibition currently being held near the Théatre de l’Odéon (all the details are in our article here). Click through to read the story behind the photo…

Serge Reggiani (1922-2004), actor, French actor, singer and of Italian descent. Paris, 1977.

I met him completely by chance when walking in the street. Told him that I’d like to take his portrait and he immediately gave me his telephone number. Photo taken in 1977. He lived in the Marais. Photo taken in his garden, as if it were outdoors at a country house. The shooting was very quick, it was very cold.

The Bruno de Monès exhibition continues until 26th June 2010.
