Dealing with the unpredictable

In January, I shot a fashion test with Italian model Jessica Saponaro de Virgilis. She had seen my work a few weeks before and booked a plane to come to Paris by herself. It was a very busy month for me, and I was afraid I had to postpone the shoot twice.

The day before the photo session, my hairstylist cancelled, and my fashion stylist told me she wouldn’t be able to stay during the shoot and that she would prepare the look the day before.

Then came the day of the shoot. And my make-up artist fell on the subway stairs on her way to the studio! I was with Jessica and my assistant Chloé and I was thinking: OK it's fate! No hairstylist, no fashion stylist, no make-up artist (fortunately, she was alright, but had to go to the hospital to have her knee checked)... so how can we do it?

We decided to try to shoot just by ourselves, and I wasn't disappointed. Jessica is not as tall as the ordinary fashion model, but she definitely knows how to move! Her face is crazily expressive, her skin is amazing even without an ounce of make-up and her hair expresses a wild beauty!

Despite all the hazards, I was ravished by the result: simple and soft light, but also an amazing model.
