Paris, Cradle of Haute Couture.
Paris to which this Art belongs.
Paris burning with its renewed vitality.
An evasive noctural walk, with a slight taste for danger in search of the pleasure of reliving these emotions.
A sense of unknown pervades one’s walk in the Ville Lumiere.
Pieces of present, past and future memories emerge. its glares, its glamour made up of nights filled with lights reflected on wet asphalt, its promiscuity, its eclectic and voyeuristic asethetic a la Ryan Murphy.
A promenade to meet the people entering this voluptuous anf provocative night, a ride that will end with an exchange of clothes and the line between day and night fading away.
Extra-ordinary creatures who abandon their sensual garments opting for the attire of men – strangers friends, lovers – whom they met in this adventure of Parisian glamour, saturated by the neon lights of a penthouse, a private club, a lounge or a parking lot.
