Paris Metro


After the billboard shoot, full of excitement, I drive to Paris with my friend Carlos and as we’re leaving Jac gives me the flowers. By the time he arrives in town the blooms are pretty dried out but we love the way they look, so we make them star in an metaphorical series of photos on the métro – why is this woman wandering around with dead flowers?

Jac’s doing an illustration for The Economist newspaper, except they forget to tell him and just as we’re walking into the subway he gets a call from his frantic colleague asking where his picture is – the deadline is just hours away so we rush back to the studio and he works in rapid time, he’s brilliant, he creates an image which normally takes 2 days in under 2 hours – then we dash back to shoot about midnight and sneak in to the métro just as it’s closing!
