 There's been all sorts of publications
in many fancy magazines
but this is special.

I took this photograph this morning
for my local grocery shop which
has been baking this cake,
le pastis landais,
every day since

"Masquerade" 2009.
"Portraits and fashion shots commissioned by magazines
defaced with shells collected on the Bay of Biscay.
There’s an unavoidable sense of a lively pun
at play here between the calcareous artifact of marine life
with the living skull. A playful attempt to undermine pomposity and vanity,
an homage to Marcel Duchamp's mustached Mona Lisa."


Thank you Laurent for your words

 Other stones live in the garden.
They seems to come to life when it rains
as it does today.

 Today. One shot of 2 stones.

On the bench in front of the kitchen.

They have been there for years.

They live their life,

The life of a stone.

Stephane Mallarmé   (1842-1898)

Dans le si blanc cheveu qui traîne
Avarement aura noyé
Le flanc enfant d'une sirène.

    Beautiful lay out as always
    The house of Franca Sozzani, editor in chief of Vogue Italy, Marrakech.

    None of the magazines in Russia, Spain or France have reproduced this picture showing the only contemporary photograph of the house. I couldn't conceive speaking of Franca Sozzani without at least mentioning she is one of the most influential image maker in the world of fashion. What Franca chooses to hang on her walls cannot pass unnoticed.
