'Jeff Koons Avait Raison' is a fashion shoot that has some personal meaning for me. Up until now, I used to shoot with really complex lightning arrangements, using a lot of different colours, and I wanted to do something that broke those rules.

With a much simpler lighting setup, for this shoot I wanted to focus on funny and 'cartoon' characters. I have a deep admiration for photographers like Guy Bourdin, Jean-Paul Goude or Tim Walker who are shooting with humour and a sense of distance and they were an influence here.

The French title 'Jeff Koons Avait Raison' (translated: Jeff Koons Had Reason) is a reference to the duality between Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst in contemporary art; whereas Hirst's work is about Death, Koons' work is about entertainment. This is what I kept in mind while I was shooting.
