Paris + the Champerret Paper Show

It was mid-February, time for Paris and the paper show at Champerret. What can I say it's always wonderful. Bought and sold some great material, ate and drank, talked and walked, criss crossing the city countless times in search of the marvelous, the elusive and previously unseen beauty. Music-track by sayCet for my week in Paris is here. Champerret + Paris photos...click on any image to enlarge.

French pin-up, glamour illustrator extraordinaire, Aslan, always well represented at the fair, passsed away February 11th at the age of 84.

My trips to Paris are not complete until visiting Nicole Canet's galerie devoted to the nude and the body, Au Bonheur du Jour...

...and my dear friends Gilles Berquet and Mirka Lugosi

...showing me/posing with their latest work

Mutual friend, Poupee Mecanique of the band Human Toys, recently 
returned to Paris after a long sojourn in Los Angeles.

Recent drawing by Mirka. I will have an exciting announcement soon about a collaboration between Mirka, Gilles and Vasta Images.

Everyone knows Paris is the city of light. It is also a city of typography and graphics. The Place de la Concorde metro station is a distinctive example with its décor created by artist Françoise Schein: she covered the entire vault of the 12 line station with tiles spelling out the Déclaration des Droits de l'Homme et du Citoyen of 1789.

Highly recommended exhibition at the Musee d'Art Decoratif of the typographer Philippe Apeloig there until the end of March.

My next show is the two day New York City Photo Fair April 11 & 12th
