This collection of almost one hundred and fifty images traces the dynamic continuum that is Clergues career: from the mysterious gypsies of his childhood, and his friendships with Picasso, Cocteau and other avant-garde personalities, to breathtaking images of sea and sand, riveting nudes, and searing portraits.

This volume also includes a biography that highlights Clergues accomplishments as an artist, an essay on his ventures into surrealism, and a series of correspondence between Clergue and Jean Cocteau.
