CONCORDE 20 FÉVRIER 1969About this photograph
« Dieuzaide was always a fanatic admirer of flying things. His images are a living illustration of his passion for aeronautic construction and aerial manifestations. He found the land of the take off in Toulouse, the best opportunities to seize in his objective lens sun or sky, the most astonishing forms, the most impressive or the most poetic of these flying machines that have become the stuff of so many dreams. The exhibition ' Rêves d?avions ' retraces the fabulous history of the conquest of the sky and gives homage to the men and to the rare women who have written it and highlights the talent of this poet of light and of his precious vision as an esthete and a photographer. »Yves Marc, CommissionerRead more Read less
