Super Baby, Super Mom
Where are our magic costumes
Women glances revealed.
Paris, portrait, mai 2013.
(Fernando asked me 10 random facts about myself : I often lost count is my tenth — I had a lot of fun all along this challenge, I hope to have stuck some smiles on your faces from time to time, and I end with a passing fancy with a portrait of Petite Flamme bleue, my fav model, my daughter.)
«Brooklyn speaks French.»
Paris, port de la Gare, May 2013.
(Fernando asked me 10 random facts about myself : judging by the American mocking glances when I say it, I don’t know how to pronounce this word, Brooklyn, properly is my ninth one — now, I do look forward to feel again NYC beating, and to meet some of my virtual buddies in a few days. Can’t wait, guys!)
«Priez pour nous, nous baisons pour vous.»
(“Pray for us, we fuck for you.”)
«In gode ceinture we trust.»
(“In strap-on dildo we trust.”
In French, we abbreviate the word “godemiché”, which means “dildo”, in “gode” — pronounced like “god” in English.)
Paris, Clok’s serie (tentative d’épuisement) of Belleville, rue Lassus et rue Fessart (French speakers will appreciate both), May 2013.
«C’est une rue déserte
Qui remonte aux deux bouts
Des chats décolorés
Filent en prise directe
Sans jamais s’arrêter
Parce qu’il y pleut jamais
Le jour c’est moins joli.» Boris Vian.
Paris, rue Watt, May 2013.
(Fernando asked me 10 random facts about myself : fan of the right bank, I know very badly the 13th is my seventh one — it’s nevertheless the kingdom of a master of a grey and rainy Paris, Jacques Tardi.)
Thanx so much, Christian, for this so rainy afternoon in your Paris, let’s take another aspirin… ;)))
«La vie est une cerise - La mort est un noyau - L’amour un cerisier.» Jacques Prévert.

«L’amour libre, la seule chose gaie et bonne au monde.» Guy de Maupassant.
(“Free love, the only cheerful and good thing of the world.”)
Paris, Clok’s serie (tentative d’épuisement) of Belleville, rue des Envierges, April 2013 (very early).
Groups terrify me, I feel stifled simply by thinking I would have to conform to a tribe rules, and, although faithful to my own commitments, I’m an ever-changing mind — I can’t hardly imagine why I should write down something in my flesh in a permanent way.
Suresnes, tatoo, during a concert, in motion, 2013.
“The dripping… well, if it happens, it happens; it does not take anything from the work. The dripping just proves that you were not trying to control the work, but the work was developing by itself and if it drips, it’s a natural part in the evolution of the work.” Keith Haring.
For the Parisians : Keith Haring exhibit at the Musée d’art moderne and at the 104.
Paris, Musée d’art moderne, mai 2013 (Fernando asked me 10 random facts about myself : I was 20 years old in the early 80s is my fourth one — street artists, punks, zero tolerance towards racism, gays rights demands, AIDS fear, are some stuff among others stuck in my mind).
«Halte à l’enfumage!»
Literally, “No more smoking-out”, but it means “No more trickery”.
Paris, les Champs-Élysées, mai 2013 (Fernando asked me 10 random facts about myself : as a journalist, I worked for the newspaper “Causette” is my third one — a french feminist newspaper held by two men, you can see its front page in the background here. Now their photographer is pretty good!).
«Attention aux préjugés!»
«Libérez les sardines mangeuses de connards!»
“Beware of the prejudices!”
“Free the sardines, jerks eaters!”
Paris, rue Orfila, mai 2013 (Fernando asked me 10 random facts about myself : I do love nonsense humor is my second one — I just can’t resist to a flash of humor… and the everyday life prejudices get on my nerves!).
“I’m lost but I’m not stranded yet.Entre les dérapages, Entre les lignes d’orages, Entre temps entre nous Et entre chien et loup. Au maximum du voltage, A peine est passé le message Au fil du rasoir.”
Paris, les Champs-Élysées, mai 2013 (Fernando asked me 10 random facts about myself : I’m lost but I’m not stranded yet is my first one — now, almost each of my images is a fact about myself, amigo! :p).
