The truth is: I only want to photograph life. High fashion, brainless models and designers, trendy stuff, people who think they're someone, Parisian hype, the industry, useless magazines, is not life, at all. And if playing the photographer's part makes me pretend these things are part of my existence, then I'll have to change everything again. I will keep photographing: sunlight, loved ones, water, summer nights, flowers and trees, surprises, unknown cities, real people. Yeah, goodbye fake.

Je like. Et n'oublie pas de photographier la vie, biensur, mais aussi le vit (mais ça ne s'écrit pas pareil).
