Raymond Cauchetier is born in Paris.
Cauchetier enlists into the air force, based in Montpellier in the very south of France.
Cauchetier responds to a call for volunteers to go to Indochina where the war against the Viet Minh was heating up.
Cauchetier's first two publications of photographs taken whilst he is in Indochina are published. Ciel de Guerre en Indochine is published in Lausanne and Saigon is published in Paris.
Cauchetier is hired as the on-set photographer for Jean-Luc Godard's first feature film, bout de souffle.
Cauchetier is invited back to Cambodia by then King Norodom Sihanouk, who enlisted him to create a book documenting the countryside and the capital city Phnom Penh, much as he had done in Vietnam the previous decade.
Cauchetier works on his last New Wave film as a stills photographer, FranTruffaut's Baisers Vol.
He turns 90 and has his first solo exhibition of his photographs at the James Hyman Photography, London.
