1987 La série dans le A

We were the youth of the 80s and 90s, I always had my Minolta X700 reflex with me, and looking for ideas. With girlfriends, we were going on Sunday afternoons to the dancing afternoon ball at Bataclan. There was rock music, punk, disco, hip hop. We were dancing and new friendships and loves were formed there.
I wanted to keep this precious time in a picture box. So I made a kind of leaflet to fill in, most of them agree to participate in the photo game. I perhaps regret that an actress and a cinema director of the time at the beginning of their celebrity, did not have time to come for these photo shooting.

The photographs were made at my friend Solange's apartment, rue de l'Ourcq in the 19th arrondissement. This opening was a separation of the main room, it had been imagined and structured by Anouck's brother. It was a perfect frame and stage for a visual theater where everyone played the game of posing.

I had dropped out of my photo lab - lab - which was not really one… I lived in a 20 m2 studio, in the 14th arrondissement and I had placed three small bins on a black metal travel trunk : revealing , stop bath, fixer to make my photo prints. This large black lined curtain was used to prevent all light from passing through the single window that overlooked Avenue Denfert-Rochereau.

Among this happy band photographed and memorized, some are no longer alive today, I am thinking of my precious friend Laure Tran, of Christophe Salengro.
