Love, Happiness, Generosity are some of the core values of Style and the City photographs. Not because I am good, but because we are surrounded by great people. These people make me forget the bad and sad sides of our societies, of our civilizations. Yes, life is hard and will beat you down. But as hard life can be, a single and sincere smile has the power to make you bounce back and believe that you are valuable.
Someday I will be a movie writer because I want to have many lives, fill in my mind and body with great emotions. I love to tell stories and share emotions with and audience, with you. I wanted to do some stand up comedy on stage : I bought 2 books on Amazon and spent 6 months to learn the art of stand up comedy. I went on stage and… it was amazing. The first time people laugh at my jokes, I felt connected to them. And it’s a great feeling that I hope someday you’ll experiment.
What is the connection with my photographs ? The connection is the human factor. You will never be happier in your life when you share human relationship. Fashion means nothing compared to the beauty of human relationship. I could focus on accessories but I am not interested in doing so. Why ? Because a smile will brighten your day, your life better than any accessories. You must start to believe in it to see the beauty the world has to offer to you. And a smile, is a nice beginning.
Shiona Turini, Rajni Jacques, Nicole Chapoteau and friends have ones of the sweetest smiles of the fashion week. And I’ll be more than happy to share them with you and many others in a great musical slideshow in the coming days. Meanwhile, offer a smile to a person on the street and see what happens. Trust life.
