The artist will be exhibiting rare and vintage images at the Throckmorton gallery till September 13, 2014. This is just one of a hundred solo shows that he has done over the course of five decades. Clergue is a living legend; the long-time friend of Picasso, an elected member of the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris, and the author of 75 art books.
