It is said that his work as a photographer has influenced artists like Wes Anderson & brands like Lacoste (their popular campaign of models jumping).

In my opinion, it is quite clear for Anderson in Rushmore (1998) (must watch!) with Max Fischer played by Jason Schwartzman in comparison to Lartigue’s photographs of Zissou; which can be seen in the gallery below. The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004) actually names the main character, played by Bill Murray, “Zissou”. & uses an image of Lartigue as Lord Mandrake.

I thoroughly enjoy Lartigue’s work along with Wes Anderson’s. I highly recommend that you check out both!

Stay curious,
