Born 1943 in Cavaillon, French photographer of fashion, glamor and portraiture Jean-François Jonvelle worked on the release of 20 ans magazine and then worked on Dim, Dam, Dom, Vogue, Stern, Gala, Elle.
In the 1960s, Jonvelle was assistant to Richard Avedon. During his career, he made many portraits of women, often his friends: natural young people, often naked, unconcerned. Unlike other fashion and glamor photographers, who offer a provocative woman, Jean-François Jonvelle’s performance is much softer, more natural, more jovial but equally sensual.
In 2002, Jonvelle died in Paris at the age of 58 years of terminal cancer, 15 days after it was detected.
