The Magnificent Lovers
Galerie de l'Instant's latest photographic installment is dedicated to one of Hollywood's iconic couples: Alain Delon and Romy Schneider. From intimate scenes to the big screen, the photos trace the romance of the cinematic lovers in black and white, as well as colour.
Orginially meeting in 1958 and quickly falling into a whirlwind romance before separating in 1964, the actors were reunited in La Piscine, by Jacques Deray in 1969. Complicated, passionate and dizzying, the mystery that surrounded their relationship captivated viewers and became a symbol of French cinema. As beautiful and crazy as Burton and Taylor, there's was a love that fascinated the audience, both on and off screen.
Through a collection of mostly well-known (and some unseen) snaps Galerie de l'Instant traces the relationship of this inspiring couple.
