Most of these portraits have never been published before.

They were taken mainly at Paris Fashion Week events,

at an hour when masks tend to slip.

To me, they compose a sort of Fellini-esque mosaic

of designers and muses, celebrities and unknowns,

the eccentric and the elegant.


Considering how images are now distributed and consumed, I wanted to publish these photographs

on paper to allow them greater depth - and maybe

even a theatrical dimension - in addition to their overall good humor.


I would also especially like to thank all those who were willing to just be themselves.
