The location was better than my wildest dreams and the long term plan I've nurtured to shoot a naked ballerina by the bar was finally realized. Lionel has a precise and steady hand (astonishingly with Elisabeth on her points) and the film he captured in the movie camera is destined to become a collector's piece.
After the session it was natural to have lunch at the Café Beaubourg, where the art, architecture and design crowd meet to exchange opinions as only French intellectuals do, and after all that culture I thought it was time to get back down to earth at "Phylea" - one of the classiest fetish shops in Paris, a neat little treasure trove of Pret à Porter Lingerie, Victorian corsets and a whip or two. If you're going to a special party or you're just in a playful mood, this is the place to find the accessories.
After dealing with the owner of the place, we got to film some scenes with Elisabeth sliding into some rubbery creations, maybe a bit intimidating for our sweet little 18 year old because she looks more scared then sexy in the film... Check out the clips to the right…although I can't wait to bring Luba here and let her indulge herself in some of these provocative outfits.
The day still being young we headed for Père Lachaise, the most famous cemetery in Paris and now the home of Molière and Jim Morrison, both of whom would have enjoyed the session, I'm sure. The graveyard turned out to be teeming with live people, and as Elisabeth didn't feel comfortable among all the dead people, we returned to my loft and ended the day with Elisabeth in the tub and then relaxing on the big bed... all while my camera was busily clicking, clicking, clicking…
…over and out… Petter
