Daniel Filipacchi


French producer and photographer.

He is the Chairman Emeritus of Hachette Filipacchi Médias and a renowned collector of surrealist art.

Filipacchi acquired the venerable Cahiers du cinéma in 1964. Cahiers was in serious financial trouble and its owners convinced Filipacchi to buy a majority share in order to save it from ruin. Filipacchi hired a number of his own people and redesigned the journal to look more modern, zippy, and youth-appealing. After the revolutionary May 1968 events in France and the subsequent evolution of Cahiers into a more political forum under the influence of the Maoist director Jean-Luc Godard and others, Filipacchi wanted out of the magazine and sold his share in 1969.

He started more magazines and acquired many others, such as Paris Match in 1976. Some were for teenage girls (such as Mademoiselle Age Tendre) and others for men (such as Lui, which Filipacchi founded in 1963 along with Jacques Lanzmann, Newlook, and French editions of Playboy and Penthouse)
