“I am self-taught. I learned photography alone, from books. Books have been my only teachers.
For 10 years, I exclusively made portraits of filmmakers. Between two doors, as fast as possible, as best as I could. For others, for magazines, to learn. The fame of my subjects allowed me to stay in the shadows for a long time. My life then was discreet. I didn’t drink, I didn’t smoke, I didn’t dance. I never had a taste for provocation nor for excess. I was grey. An average grey.
I was a son without revolt, a student without history. I walked the beat. Without surprise. A life drawn in advance, by circumstances, geography, family. Until I was 36, I had the impression that I had not disobeyed, and that I had not really lived anything worth telling. A kind of boredom that doesn’t say its name.
And then, a foolish love. And my silent life became noisy.”
