Description

Paris Match is a weekly French magazine which covers news, entertainment, fashion, and celebrity lifestyle features. It was founded in 1949 and is one of France's most successful and influential magazines. It was often compared to America's 'Life' magazine, partly due to the emphasis both magazines placed on high quality photojournalism.

This issue was published the month after the historic Apollo 11 mission on 20 July 1969, where humanity took its first steps on the Moon. The front cover features an image of Buzz Aldrin on the Lunar surface. It shows the international interest in the Apollo missions at the time.
