graphic trail of reflections and the pursuit of a perfect angle.
Few cameras later, I made it to New York to assist photographers i respect - Bruce weber, Mikael Jansson, Solve Sundsbo, Steven Klein.
My photos are my eye witnesses.
The ongoing series of films is a collaboration with my co-conspirator and wife Marie-Cerise [www.marie-cerise.com].
Made in the setting of New York City, they are inviting the viewer to enter the world of stolen moments. The visual shorts are meditations on poetics of every day.
Picture is worth a thousand words. Inspired, I am in the process of writing my first screen play. Full feature film is an igniting look into a window in time and life of two New Yorkers in the 1960’s.
I keep shooting. see you soon...
