Finch & Partners and Jaeger-LeCoultre continue their collaboration with the third edition of their exhibition The Art of Behind the Scenes.

Revealing a selection of pictures taken by some of the world’s most accomplished “on-set” photographers, this exhibition will celebrate the art of photography. The Art of Behind the Scenes also provides an opportunity to travel back into the golden era of filmmaking with iconic directors and actors.

The vernissage will be held at the Hôtel du Cap (Antibes) on May 19, 2017, coinciding with the annual Cannes Film Festival. In the spirit of this exhibition, Jaeger-LeCoultre will also display a Compass camera created in 1938 by the Manufacture.

Paying tribute to this photography heritage, the Grande Maison unveiled a further series of classic photos captured through its camera lens in New York, Paris, Shanghai and Venice. These locations have since become the backdrop to the iconic movies being exhibited.

Every member of a film set is an artist in their individual field–from actor to director, cameraman to costume designer. They all contribute to the final story and filmmaking product.

With the exhibition The Art of Behind the Scenes, Jaeger-LeCoultre and Finch & Partners will celebrate
this artistic ingenuity and the pivotal role of photography.
