Snapshots (2)


Well, I am not going to let you look for the answer any longer ..
Only Marie-Laure found out what my role was in those 2 books : I was the stylist.
I have often been asked to explain what is this job about. In the case of those books (like for the ones that followed)
the purpose was to present nicely the artist’s creations.

Try to imagine what the picture would look like for example… taken from the top with different accessories (a black tray, a spoon with a red handle, and the whole put down on a wooden desk).
The atmosphere would have been much different.
That’s why each detail matters. Even the croissant you choose … That’s true!!! … Even the way it’s been bitten!

This part of my job brings me lots of joy!
It also remembers me when, as a little girl, I was used to create installations just to look at them.


But obviously, all of this means nothing without a good photographer

LTA just published two new books : “Paris Vintage” by Hélène Le Berre and “Kawaï” by Christine Nivet. I am not the author, of course I’m not the photographer either, and none of my creations is featured in this books…

So, why do I have to say about???  Can you guess?

Here it is, I just received the first copy of the small book that I made for Le Temps Apprivoisé publishers ! It is part of a collection entitled “Mes petits bonheurs”. Nice program, isn’t it ?

I talked a little bit about it there, but it had to remain a secret. Now I am allowed to speak about it and to show you the cover.
Such a projectIt is new for me, and I feel very lucky because Valérie Gendreau trusted me to do both the creations and the layout. I am also very happy that Claire Curt was the one who made the pictures. The result is as beautiful as the moment we spent together !

The official release is May 14th. Now I have a kind of stage fright… Hope you will enjoy it !
