Yesterday I heard from Carole Fevre, who felt that our recent article about Voja Mitrovic neglected to underline the prominence of her father’s role in the history of printing at Picto and of the work of the greats including Henri Cartier-Bresson and Josef Koudelka. Georges Fevre was for many decades one of the stalwarts of Picto in Paris, and he was a very important printer not only of Cartier-Bresson's and Koudelka’s work but of the work of many world-famous photographers. If he wasn’t printing himself, he was involved in the production of prints as the director of black-and-white printing. Peter Turnley remembers Georges Fevre as a wonderful, kind, talented, and generous man, with an enormous passion for photographic expression. Peter says, "It is important that his name receive prominent attention regarding the legacy of the photography lab Picto and his role in the history of photography, and in the printing and production of prints of all of the great photographers who Picto served over the years."
Many different hands helped realize the work of the great Cartier-Bresson and others, and by emphasizing one it was certainly not our intention to diminish any others.
