Biography

André Zucca was born in Paris in 1897. He started his career as a photographer in the 1920's, working for theatre magazine "Comoedia". From 1935 to 1937, he contributed to various French and foreign magazines, producing a series of photo reports, first across the Balkan States and around the Mediterranean Sea, then aboard a merchant ship from Le Havre to Japan. In the early days of WWII, he worked as a war correspondent on the Finnish front, and, back in France, chronicled the "phoney war" with Joseph Kessel for "Paris-Soir" newspaper. In August 1941, he became Paris correspondent for the German propaganda nazi magazine "Signal", and thus obtained a work permit, as well black and white films and very rare Agfacolor film. In this context and during three years, he photographed the Parisian and French life during the Occupation, then the Liberation of Paris. In October 1944, he was arrested then released due to the dropping of charges in 1945. André Zucca left Paris at that time to live near Dreux where he resumed his activity as a local photographer. He settled back in Paris in 1965, and died in Montmartre in 1973. In 1986, the Historical Library of the City of Paris bought André Zucca's collection to his children – around 22,000 black and white negatives and 1,300 colour slides. Roger-Viollet is the exclusive worldwide distributor of André Zucca's photographs.
