Jean Paul Gaultier & Roche Bobois

What an excitement is was to shoot the new furnitures collection of Roche Bobois designed by Jean Paul Gaultier, the worldwide known french stylist!

To present this new collection, I made a portrait of Jean Paul Gaultier in his splendid and timeless « Salon Haute Couture » in Paris.




I already knew Jean Paul Gaultier because I had worked with him on different photoshoots for the French magazine Madame Figaro and for Parisian Hotels.

I really liked this shooting because he was comfortable with the objective as we knew each other.

In fact, he’ s a very funny person with a lot of humour. Even if he is at the head of a world fashion empire, he doesn’t take himself seriously and has this very cheerful and fun attitude.

Actually, for the needs of a photogenic shooting (but also for fun…), we threw cushions on him during the whole day of shooting… Later I worked with my photoshop retouchers to create the images you can see below.
