Not your average doll !


Diana Moldovan is so much more than a doll face. First of all she really looks like Gene Tierney who I consider being one of the most beautiful and heartbreaking actresses I ever saw on screen. But the most important thing I am deeply obsessed with when thinking about Diana is her Voice. I could literally put my camera down in a middle of a shoot : Just being there doing nothing but listening to her voice. Oh.. That would make my day. That fashion doll would disappear because of the sound of words behind the words. Yes I can tell you : Her low, rough and profound voice is not talking about dollhouses. It comes from a much more distant country of adventure where the sun is still young for beggars who act in dark forests....She made me daydreaming I guess...

For you guys, some outtakes from a story called "Razor's Edge".
I shot it for The Ones To Watch. Thanks to Rosie for showcasing my work.

Extra Rays From The Sun


"Mama always told me not to look into the sights of the sun
Oh but Mama, that's where the fun is.."

And it was almost a girl and came to be
Out of this single joy of song and lyre
And though her green veils shone forth radiantly
And make herself a bed inside my ear.

And slept there. And her sleep was everything :
The awesome trees, the distances I had felt
So deeply that I could touch them,
Meadows in spring :
All wonders that ever seized my heart

She slept the world. Singing god, how was that first sleep
So perfect that she had no desire ever to wake ?
See : She arose and slept.

Where is her death now ? Ah, will you discover
This theme before your song consumes itself ?
Where is she vanishing ?...A girl almost...

Swim to me, let me enfold you.


Shooting Madisyn Ritland is always like approaching a Cape Horn of emotions for me. As long as I am not a steady shooter and that I hate tripods...The only thing I had left that day to be able to save some beauty was my own secret faith and belief... However harsh was the storm and vain the destination.

Defenses down

I snapped this photo of the amazing Martha Hunt after a shoot for Harper's Bazaar US. So I consider this being rather an "After Fashion" picture ...
