Gerard Courbouleix-Deneriaz, commonly known as Razzia, has been active in the advertising field since the Seventies. Growing up in Montparnasse during the 1960s, he studied English Literature and Fine Art at the University of Paris where he taught himself the basics of photography. He became a successful rock photographer, shooting groups like Pink Floyd and the Rolling Stones. Inspired by Art Deco and Surrealism, he turned his hand in the Eighties to poster art, creating more than 100 memorable series for Louis Vuitton, Roland Garros Tennis Tournament, Cannes Film Festival and many others over the last thirty years.
This classic was designed for the northern French seaside resort at Le Touquet, which became a popular destination for British tourists early in the 1900s and continues to be fashionable today.
