L'Homme Sans Visage...Bastille, Paris
Shot by Julien Boudet
During my last week in Europe, I met up with a photo friend Julien Boudet for a photo session. He mentioned how amazing the staircase in the building was on Boulevard Richard LeNoir. But said the best time to shoot was at noon because the light was perfect. So I followed his strict instructions and got dressed in an African Print Dent de Man jacket, black HM shorts, brown Paul Smith loafers, and my usual fedora Borsalino hat. I made to the building at noon on the dot and we took the tiny elevator to the top floor. Everything in Paris seems to be tiny. Julien started shooting me from sixth floor and I walked down to the fifth then forth but it felt awkward to look up, so I'm faceless in most of the shots. Hence the French title of the shoot, "L'Homme Sans Visage" which means The Man Without a Face.
