From the diary of the artist as a young boy:

All the pretty or curious things give me so much pleasure. Thanks to photography, I can hold them.

“By miniaturizing the world through his passion for photography, Lartigue could hold everything, even himself, like a toy.”
— from Reading Boyishly, by Carol Mavor
