These artisanal prints are made in our workshop in La Rochelle.
This is undoubtedly the most romantic of the master's chronophotographs in the field: Georges Demenÿ.
A man unjustly misunderstood in comparison to his contribution to the 7th art... and to sport! We explain to you.
In pairs with Etienne-Jules Marey, a doctor, they broke down the movement into photos, animated them and dressed them in sound to make it… finally a film! The dimension is totally medical and educational. There is still no narration or recreational aim, as we will find in the films of the Lumière brothers, a few years later. This chronophotography was to be used to teach hearing-impaired people how to lip-read. They obviously started with THE essential sentence for each individual: “I love you”. When we say that the French are romantic!
And for physical education?
Ruined by his research, Demenÿ sold the rights to a certain Léon Gaumont (yes, the Gaumont of cinemas) and theorized physical education as we know it today, in books and by creating a school.
Like what there really are "several lives in a life"...
Last funny fact: It is Georges Demenÿ himself who serves as a model in "I love you". What put a face to a name.
