Frank Horvat(b. 1928)
Frank Horvat is a photographer born on April 28, 1928 in Opatija (Croatia), presently living and working in France. There is some misconseption on Horvat's origin, given that he was born in Croatia when it was partially taken by Italians. Nevertheless, he is a Croat, born in Croatia to a Croat family. 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. In 1988, he produced a major book of interviews with fellow photographers (such as Don McCullin, Robert Doisneau, Sarah Moon, Helmut Newton, Marc Riboud). At the beginning of the 1990s, he was one of the first to experiment with Photoshop. In 1998, he replaced his professional equipment with a compact 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 (Horvatland).
