Paris fashion week day 3 : I don’t understand !! I don’t understand why street style photographers still consider beautiful stylish women from fashion like coat racks. I just don’t get it. I don’t understand why 90% of photographers don’t do photography as an art as I do. I know that almots all of them focuse on clothes and accessories because that’s what magazines and website ask for, but nevertheless, they could macth that goal with art. When I see such beautiful women like Ece Sukan being assault by photographers I am jusr amazed to realize that they don’t see what I see, they don’t realize how they could create a beautiful moment for their readers.
When I see a woman, I don’t see a coat rack; I see a human being with a body and face that move, that can create emotions. It’s my goal as an artist to help create these emotions by understanding where they come from. The way a woman move, the way she walk, the way she talk, smile, laugh… are all opportunities for me to understand how natural beauty is created, how glamour can suddenly explode in my eyes. It’s a very big challenge to be able to reveal a woman’s glamour in live as there are now very too many photographers that stop them every 20 seconds, cut my angles all the times and let me just 1 to take a natural pictures. But it worth so much for me. A pictures for me is a gift, not a robbery. I could take great pictures of accessories and make a lot more money. But I don’t want to do it. Too easy, not creative, lifeless. I’ve never been a money driven guy. I just love to create, to innovate, to be different and make a change inn whatever field I decide to enter.
I am happy to have the courage to always quit a job whenever I feel it’s time to do something else in my life. I quit a french female magazine 5 years ago to create Style and the City without having taken any picture in my life. But when you are driven by your passion and not greed, when you want to make this world better than when you found it, you can create magic. Give and people will give you. That’s why I like Ece Sukan very much. So kind and generous… And guess what ! I have so many gorgeous women to present you in the coming days. The smiles they gave me will brigthen your day… Stay tuned and don’t forget to be the change to want to see in this world (of fashion ?)
