Jean Roubier was an extremely prolific and well known fine art photographer and photo-journalist, and a noted French patriot. Wounded in both World Wars, he refused to publish during the occupation. He founded his first portrait studio in 1934 and closed it in 1939 under the Nazis, joining the resistance. After the war he organized a new professional organization for photographers and became very active in the field of livres d’art, books of fine photography, eventually producing a life’s work of 100,000 photographs by the time he retired in 1970.
