16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
The person-inside

After 9 months of work and a project involving 45 people, I have just finished the model of my first book: “La personne-intérieur” (the person-inside). Initially, with a protocol I developed, I had the (utopian) ambition to show the aesthetics of intimacy, from an authentic point of view, of the photographer-model relationship. Am I a medium or have I really penetrated this intimacy? The answer is a 120-pages book, with the successes and failures, with a sensitive approach in the pictures and texts (alone or combined), in order to be able to establish a homogeneous and personalized speech.
