Rita Chauveau (4 Feb 1911 - 20 Jan 2005) was a street photographer born in Montreal, Canada.
Between the years of 1955 and 1987, Rita took 3500 Kodachrome slides, throughout her travels in 22 countries: Argentina, Antigua, Barbados, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Greece, Haiti, India, Jamaica, Japan, Martinique, Morocco, Mexico, Peru, Porto Rico, Portugal, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, USA, and the Virgin Islands.
Her family say of her work; ‘Her pictures are very cinematographic. They tell powerful stories: encounters and discoveries. Intimate connections and universal interactions are linked together. Her photographic style, guided by her boundless curiosity, takes us on a trip to where we find ourselves’.
