New York Fashion week, feb. 12 – At Lincoln center.
Dear readers, dears friends, deare fans. In several previous articles I talked to you about some aspects of humanist street style photography, about what was making them appart from other street style photographs. The 2 more important aspects of humanist photography are :”LOVE” and “RESPECT”. The humanist photographer is in love with his world, with people, with mother nature, with the sky, with the clouds, with rain, snow… as as far as I’m concerned, I’m in love with women. It is not a sexual desire but more an artistic love. Their face, their curves, their smile, their look, the way they walk, the way they watch at you when they want to charm you… It’s simply irresistible.
How many stories about actors falling in love during a filming ! Knowing someone intensely during a short period of time multiplies the feeling, the desire. Filming takes many months. Taking a serie of pictures takes 1-2-3 min and often less than that to capture the natural beauty of a woman. Now you can imagine the pressure and the intensity of my work, surrounded by people passing by, cars hundreds of photographers ready to jump into your model,… But even few seconds are enough for a humanist photographer to fall in love with his subject. I felt in love every day, at every fashion show and every encounter I decided to take in picture. I felt in love with Mariel Buque as she greeted me with an amazing sweet smile. She complimented me about my work and she shouldn’t have done it. Because I felt in love even more. My decision was made : I will make the whole world fall in love with her. My english is unfortunately not fluent enough to express what I feel when I look at her eyes, the way she embrace the horizon… If I was Shakespear, I am sure I would have come up with more beautiful words… But I am not Shakespear, jut a french photographer that is about to leave New York in few days…
Mariel, if you have a boyfriend, tell him that he is one of the luckiest man in the world. And thank you for having brigthened my day this wednesday. See you very soon…
