Frank Horvat is a photographer born on April 28, 1928 in Opatija (then Italy, now Croatia), presently living and working in France. He is best known for his fashion photography, published between the mid 1950s and the end of the 1980s, but his photographic opus includes photojournalism, portraiture, landscape, nature and sculpture.He has extensively travelled and speaks and writes fluently in four languages. In 1988, he produced a major book of interviews with fellow photographers (such as Édouard Boubat, Robert DoisneauSarah MoonDon McCullin, Helmut NewtonMarc Riboud). At the beginning of the 1990s, he was one of the first to experiment with digital photography. In 1998, he replaced his professional equipment with a compact digital camera, which he always carries in his pocket, in order to shoot anything, at any moment that seems to him of some interest. In 2011, he put online his first iPad application, called Horvatland. He likes to say : Photography is the art of not pushing the button.
