The week starts taking shape on Sunday when I have a session scheduled with Henrietta, a seriously gorgeous young girl from Hungary. She’s just starting her career but she has that essential je ne sais quoi that says she’s going to be a player.
Monday, I’m taking Luba on a pilgrimage to meet Dahmane, the legendary Parisian photographer whose work I’ve long admired. Tuesday, Luba has her date in Pigalle with Didier Carre, and Wednesday Miss Lza Steyaert will bare her soul for the Hegre bright shining lenses. Thursday, Luba will change roles and get shooting a Ukrainian model…details to come.
The response from the various agencies has been encouraging, and at the moment we’re trying to pull strings to make a backstage documentary at the Moulin Rouge.
Back in the present, the light in our atelier is fantastic with the huge glass skylight creating chiaroscuro shadows on the sloping walls. I never get tired of photographing Luba, and in her très French denim, a little pink silk corset and Armani shoes, she appears like a butterfly pinned to the stark white walls. Check out the photos.
Finally, I received news from Edition Skylight: my new book "100 NAKED GIRLS" will be in the shops this autumn and I can promise you it will be an interesting collection.
Stay tuned. Petter
