Studio HARCOURT France, b. 1934

Studio Harcourt, timeless and beyond fashion, generates light. The photographer, like a sculptor, creates and shapes a case of light around his model, he interprets a symphony of shadows and light, impalpable like a caress.

​This unique image conceals a story, an emotion, a clever alchemy of chiaroscuro. Light exalts the sacred, shadows sublimate the secrets of the unconscious, the soul shines through and reveals itself through looks from the most secret to the most vibrant.

​The Harcourt label tends to infuse a mythological dimension into each portrait. Time is suspended, inviting everyone to enjoy an unforgettable moment. It draws its style from the glamourous roots of the golden age of French cinema in black and white.

​Now labelled as a true institution, «Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant», the Harcourt brand is part of the collective unconsciousness and continues its quest for timelessness, engraving its mark in the imagination of time. A pictorial memory of the great artistic, cultural and political figures of the 20th century, legend is an obvious fact, defying the passing of time.
