Day+95: I Love Andre J






I got to photograph Andre for Vogue Paris, as my 1st job back.
Hadn't shot anything else than my series in a couple of months and wasn't sure how this one was gonna go.
But it was amazing.
I ended up shooting Andre trotting down Tribeca streets, in high heels boots, a floor length cap, a latex bikini. and that's it. Meanwhile, it was barely 30 degrees.
His favorite word wass fierce and he totally owned it.
And to make the story even better, he was moving to Vienna one week later to work on the LifeBall. To learn, as his goal is to create his own charity.
The issue is finally out, get one. It looks good on paper.

Apres un hiatus ou je n'ai rien fait d'autre qu'obsseder sur mon expo, voila ma premiere commande.
J'etais dubitatif mais le shoot s'est avere assez incorayable et je suis super fier des photos.
On a commence au greenwich hotel mais on a fini dans les rues de tribeca. Andre montant et descedant hudson street comme le podium d'un defile. Habille de bottes, d'une cape et du plus petit slip en latex au monde. Et c'est tout.
Il faisait -5 dehors. J'avais les mains gelees mais il etait tellememnt content d'etre dans vogue qu'il n'avait pas l'air de sentir pas le froid.
Fierce etait son mantra du jour. Fierce indeed.

Day+90: Pepites du grenier; Mr Gondry



My 1st assignement ever.
Michel Gondry for Interview.
It was quite epic.
I was obviously nervous.
He was super late so my assistant had to leave mid shoot.
He could tell everytime I wasn't sure what I was doing.
But I love the final images.
And that's why I learned that day: all you need is that one shot.

Ma premiere commission.
Michel Gondry pour Interview.
Deja, a la base, je me fais pipi dessus.
Il est en retard, donc je dois papoter avec son attache de presse qui me demande pour qui je shoote habituellement...
Il est tellement en retard que mon assitante doit partir au milieu de la seance.
Et je le vois qui s'impatiente quand je ne sais pas trop quoi faire.
Tout va bien, quoi. J'ai juste l'impression que tout le monde peut voir que je transpire comme un chacal.
Mais au final, je suis super content des photos.
Et c'est tout ce qui compte, savoir atraper un moment fugitif au milieu du choas.
