billet - doux

oui oui.  did you think for a moment i was vacationing in paris?  i admittedly freaked out when i saw this handmade replica of the arc de triomphe in the storefront of french metro {where this was shot}, that was b-e-g-g-i-n-g to be documented.  anyone that has worked with me {or knows me very well} has seen me fixated on a creative idea that just can't be shaken… well, most recently it was the arc!  the morning of the shoot i got a call from my photographer breaking the news that the store was removing the window display, so we rushed-rushed and luckily got there in time to use it!  sidebar::  i'm very much into helmut newton black + whites right now. . .
