When Sight and Sound asked for a photo of Chris Marker for Richard Roud’s profile of “The Left Bank” filmmakers in the Winter 1962-63 issue, he sent them this.
The caption reads: “ABOVE: Portrait of the director as a young cat. Marker replies to all requests for photographs of himself by sending pictures of cats; this one was taken by Resnais.”
(Copyright Sight and Sound, obviously. Sure, I have a paper copy of the Winter 1962-63 issue, but why not subscribe to their digital archive to discover more stuff like this).
