Bergon (1863-1912) ..."was a passionate exponent of the art of photographing the nude, and belonged to a group of Parisian photographers who arranged to have young models pose for them on Herblay, an island on the Seine that they had purchased. With his nephew René Le BÞgue and Achille Lemoine, he pioneered a novel photographic style in which the nude appears in association with drapery."
