Henri René Persin, born 20 September 1916 in Versailles (Yvelines) and died 29 July 1985 in Moorea (French Polynesia), is a director of French photography. Henri Persin begins as director of photography on three documentaries, the first released in 1952. The third is a short film shot in addition to Vincent van Gogh's Passionate Life of Vincente Minnelli (1956). There are thirty films (some as a manager or chief operator of the second team), including French. There are also numerous co-productions — especially Franco-Italian — and eight American films. Among these, we quote The Longest Day of Ken Annakin and others (1962, uncredited, for additional shots), Charade de Stanley Donen (1963, as a second team), or the western El Condor of John Guillermin (1970, with Jim Brown and Lee Van Cleef). The first one allows him to win in 1963 a Goldencheon Globe (partaged) with Cardinal Christian in the best-recordary. He died in 1985, at the age of 68, and was the brother of director René Persin.
