Today marks the centennial of the great French photography Robert Doisneau and though he wasn't a celebrity photographer -- the kind we obviously have the greatest use for as film obsessives -- he did them on occassion. I love this shot of one of the great auteur/muse pairings (both onscreen and off) actor Jean Marais (left) and Jean Cocteau (right).
Here's another of Pablo Picasso and Françoise Gilot.
Remember when Anthony Hopkins and Natasha McElhone pretended to be them? I know I know. No one saw Surviving Picasso (1996)... but I did because Julianne Moore was Dora Maar (another Picasso victim... excuse me, lover!) and with Julianne I martyr myself to completism.
If you could photograph one auteur/muse pairing, who would it be?
