Daniel de la Falaise has a charming country house in the Gers, and a remarkable herb garden.
La Falaise is a chef, mad about food, just like his grand mother, just as gifted, whatever he does, he does it right.
 It was somehow touching to see certain objects, a few paintings which had belonged to his grand mother Maxime or his aunt Loulou and which I had seen in their homes in New York or in Paris had found their way to this elegant house.

 
 Daniel de la Falaise is one of the most elegant man I ever met
I photographed him last July for l'Officiel.

From Africa and back home on my beloved coast, these negatives were waiting to be developed.
Why on Earth have we switched to digital ? 
So much has been lost.

Some color prints for magazines which I used to process myself
and more gelatin silver prints from various travels.

H.S.
Year after year, drawings, paintings, photographs, have piled up in my folios. I was never very good at selling my own work, mostly because what interests me is the present and the future, not the past. However, from time to time I go and get a look and often find something I had  forgotten all about. 

I thought I might invite you to have a peak. This is just the tip of the iceberg. I'm afraid it does look like an awful mess but that is quiet how it would look if you were above my shoulder. Do tell me if anything captures your attention or if there is anything you would fancy having for yourself.
