The story of a picture

Harcourt, Harcourt… Harcourt ? You can’t possibly mean those mythical black and white photographs of the likes of: Marlène Dietrich, Arletty, Joséphine Baker, Piaf, Salvador Dali, Jean Cocteau, Jean Marais, Romy Schneider…?

This summer I received a message inviting me to sit for Paris’ iconic ‘Studio Harcourt’.  Me… photographed in their glamorous, black and white, cinematic style? I think you have the wrong number…

 A few days later and more than a little apprehensive, I crossed the threshold of the famous studio…  

 They were all present: artists, singers, musicians… I was at the epicentre of the Harcourt legend: the red and gold dressing room, the discreet (yet reassuring) make-up, the spotlights coming to life one by one…

I opened the door and a little dazzled, slipped into the heart of their unique way of lighting obscurity… I closed my eyes, took a deep breath, opened them and… click!

The picture will be included in the “livre d’or” of popular music’s greatest voices.  

In the words of French singer, Barbara: “si la photo est bonne” (if it’s a good picture) I do hope you’ll like it…
