Jean Guichard is a French photographer best known for his lighthouse photos. His most famous photo is “Phares dans la Tempete, la Jument,” a dramatic view of a lighthouse being engulfed in a huge wave, with the keeper looking out from the doorway about to be swamped. Guichard was born April 28, 1952 in Paris, France. During his childhood, he spent much of his free time with his grandparents in the Morbihan department, located near the Brittany coast, where he would later take his photos of lighthouses, including the one at la Jument.
