This book has the ambition to make you travel in time; when this period comes back to life for just a moment, and time freezes, to share with you the pleasure I experience and how much I respect all these people, who are perfectly comfortable in their own century, but whose heart beats in the previous one. I followed these enthusiasts who continue, toward and against all time, to convey and transmit the lightness of being that prevailed over those years. And beyond these images, I urge you to discover what is not shown, listen to what cannot be heard, let your own nostalgia and imagination lead the rest of the way.
« Seduced by this attractive casting, won over by a warm atmosphere and the priceless charm of situations, Charles Chojnacki doesn’t need to enhance any stroke. Faced with a reality that is already staged, as though he gained access to a shooting on a Hollywood set, he works with natural complicity and obvious, blatant pleasure. His classical and well-composed snapshots are a nice tribute as much to filmmakers as to master photographers. »
