In this role, Périer photographed many of the most iconic artists of the 1960s on both sides of the Atlantic, including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, James Brown, Miles Davis, and Johnny Hallyday. Périer became a director of television commercials and a documentary filmmaker during his later career.
