12/05/2001 Rimbaud, The 8th photo.
Only seven portraits of the eternal teenager of poetry were known. A new one has been discovered, taken at the beginning of his long season in hell in Aden. Full article in French on Paris-Match website, and in the magazine n° 2711, 10th May 2001 issue.
The photo is revealed by 2 French books published at Fayard editions: "Arthur Rimbaud", a biography by Jean-Jacques Lefrère and "Rimbaud in Aden", an album of photographer Jean-Hugues Berrou, guided on the accursed poet's footsteps by Jean-Jacques Lefrère and the collector Pierre Leroy. It has been discovered by a Parisian trader and bought by Pierre Leroy. This photo is part of a 30 pics of Aden's batch, taken about 1880, when Rimbaud lived there. The collection belonged to Cesar Tian, last Rimbaud's employer (see Biography). It is not impossible that some others could be found.

Circa 1880, Arthur Rimbaud (standing, left side) pose beside other Europeans
