morePatrice Molinard was a French director and actor who also pursued photography. He was the stills photographer for George Franju's documentary 'Le Sang des Betes' or 'Blood of the Beasts', which focuses on Parisian slaughterhouses. Molinard's photographs appear in several books including 'Paris Insolite', a collection of writings from the author's experiences and observations as a tramp in 1940s Paris. Maurice Jardot's 'Chateaux de la Loire' contains photographs by Patrice Moliard and Pierre Jahan.
Here is an excerpt from page XV:
One is hardly aware today how much the monuments of the Loire Valley contribute to the charm and poetry of the countryside, but it is certain that the pleasant climate, the beautiful landscape, the subtle atmosphere would not be so highly praised were it not for the fascinating buildings rising from this soil, enriching a hospitable nature with the radiance which always attaches to exceptional people and the things they have created. Nature here owes much to man (Translation provided through brainiacbooks).
This poster was produced in the 1950's by the "Ministere des Travaux Publics, des Transports et du Tourism" or Minister of Public Works, Transport and Tourism. Featuring the French castle Chenonceau, this poster puts in evidence France's rich history and main site of interest. It's no wonder that millions of tourists flock to this country every year! The poster is in excellent condition and ready to frame. less
