Marcel Marceau’s teacher Etienne deCroux 1956 – George S. Zimbel 70 years of Photography

Marcel Marceau’s teacher Etienne deCroux 1956

Jean Seberg & Etienne deCroux, NYC 1959When I heard of the death of Marcel Marceau I thought of my experience with Etienne deCroux, Marcel Marceau’s teacher. He worked with many actors in New York during the 1950’s , including Jean Seberg and Alan Arkin. I was asked by the New York Times Drama Page to photograph him at work.
I knew that my presence at his studio would be a disturbance, because everything he did was so structured and the structure didn’t include a photographer. Rather than using a strobe I set up one flood which I bounced off the ceiling . Once everyone in the room was used to the increased light level action continued without annoying flashes…at least that was my theory.

There is a finite inventory of museum quality silver gelatine images available for sale in various sizes, printed and signed by the photographer through these fine art galleries.
