Studio Harcourt (created in 1934)
"In France, you are not an actor if you have not been photographed by the Harcourt Studio".
However, the famous sentence written by Roland Barthes in Mythologies does not cover half the activities of this company. On the upper floors of the mansion on Avenue d'Iena, an expert army of photographers, make-up artists and retouchers are busy ensuring the style is maintained on the portraits of everybody who is anybody in the celebrity world.
The Harcourt Studio will always be a must for song writers, musicians, and music-hall performers.
