The name of Irish photographer Edward Quinn remains synonymous with a specific decade and region: the Cote d'Azur of the 1950s. In launching his career, Quinn quickly recognized the public's twin fascinations with international celebrity and ritzy living, and thus spent years trolling up and down the French Riviera, capturing indelible images of the high life among the exorbitantly rich. Heinz Bütler's biographical documentary Riviera Cocktail: Edward Quinn, Photographer, Nice traces the life and career of this iconic figure and purveyor of pop culture, from his early days as a pinup photographer, through his celebrity liaisons and the images he captured on the Cote d'Azur, through the relationships he forged with such giants as Baselitz and Picasso late in life.
