Photographer Rene-Jacques was born in Phnom  Penh, Cambodia. For more than 40 years, from the 1930s to the 1970s,  Rene-Jacques was a highly regarded and much-requested photographer. He  photographed French landscapes, industrial subjects, architecture,  sports, and art. He made set photography for the film Remorques by Jean  Gremillon in 1939, and he illustrated books. After World War II,  Rene-Jacques made numerous documentary works about French towns and the  French countryside.

His landscapes and his dramatic views of Paris are  among his best works. Rene-Jacques was active in organizations such as  Le Groupe des XV (a group of 15 French photographers), which sought to  raise the status of photography to a profession. Beginning in the  1970s, Rene-Jacques stopped producing photographs for 20 years. He  returned to his craft in 1993 after an exhibition at  Saint-Benoit-du-Sault in France.
