Gérard Gastaud, Artist's Portrait Gallery  


Welcome to the Portrait Gallery of Gérard Gastaud.
This secton contains several colour and black and white photographs of personalities from various horizons. From 1982 to 2002, Gérard has photographed and mixed with many artists, painters, writers, fashion designers, film directorrs, scientists, etc. Every picture, selected among a huge collection, has a story to tell. They are not only an instant captured, but also an expression of human richness to be found in the profession of a photographer.

Each portrait is briefly described with the name and profession of the personality, as well as the date on which the photo was taken.


Please note that the photos displayed are samples only. The quality has been deliberately reduced, as each original print ordered will be executed in the manner of Fine Arts prints.
