One Thousand films on FotoTV.

Today the official WebTV station on photography released its 1000th Film – a shooting with master Lucien Clergue.

The film program of the Cologne Internet portal has set another milestone with the release of their 1000th film. For this moment FotoTV’s film crew met with the photography legend, Lucien Clergue on a beach near Arles in the South of France. The artist, best known for his nude photographs and his portraits of Picasso, was shooting model Natalia for his well-known nude portfolio.

“Nudes in water is a theme for me that has practically followed me my entire life”, says Clergue. “The motifs are a recurring inspiration for me every time and I hope that connection will be well apparent in this film. I’ve been working with Natalia for years. We have created wonderful, stunning images together, and I can’t wait until our next shooting together.”

With their 1000th film FotoTV has succeeded in bringing one of photography’s masters before its lens and to accompany him on one of his shootings. During the film and interview Clergue describes the composition of his images, as well as giving us an inside look while reflecting on his personal relationship to the Camargue, in southern France.

“Shootings such as this one with Lucien Clergue, belong to the many highlights of our work”, says executive director and FotoTV founder Marc Ludwig. “To document and witness for our viewers how the actual photographic image is created and to share information as a part of photographic history today are examples of how fortunate we are to be able to do what we do."
