It was in the tender and enveloping light of the studio that I watched Lucie posed for me, she is the first girl that I photographed when I arrived in France 4 years ago. She has become a bit like my reference when it comes to pure, candid and intriguing beauty. She is one of those girls whose personality we never manage to lift the mystery. When I photograph Lucie I look for the flaws, the gray areas and I also sometimes find this childish reflection, this little smile which suddenly gives new scope to my work. She is the woman and the little girl at the same time. Each time it is a new voyage, thank you again Lucie.
