    Hi all

    Bernard Cahier
    Bernard Cahier

    Bernard Cahier was born in Marseille, France, on June 20th 1927.

    He was an adventurer from his young days, fighting as a volunteer in WW2 when he was only seventeen, traveling to Cameroon and then to California in 1948 where destiny caught up with him: his first job was working together with Phil Hill selling foreign sports cars in Hollywood, and he married a California girl named Joan.

    He caught the racing virus, and decided to become a photojournalist. His first assignment was the Italian Grand Prix in Monza, 1952. Equipped with his Leica 3F and then 3G's, he soon became a full time international journalist and photographer, as well as the friend and confidant of drivers who would become legends.
