Photographs made for scenes in Le Grand Meaulnes, a coming-of-age novel by Alain Fournier.
These scenarios with molded figures were constructed by Louise-Edmée Chevalier and photographed by Laure Albin-Guillot. (1946)
"Assis sur un pupitre, en balançant les jambes, Meaulnes réfléchissait."
"A peine étions-nous assis que bondissait sur la piste un poney tout harnaché . . . "
