Happy New Year!
The new issue of Double is out. 2 covers by Jeff Burton + a 40 pages awsome story shot in California. And a few pages by me (:
I shot this picture with the Contax T3 i was talking about earlier at F2.8.
Baby got a brand new toy! Today, i received a new camera ordered online. I’ve been dreaming about it for a while. I had the Contax T2 earlier and many G2s and i just had the opportunity to switch to T3. From what i can say now, without having tested it yet, is that it’s much more compact than the T2. It actually feels like these small compact digital cameras, but more solid. The body is all titanium like Contax uses to do. The lens is a Carl Zeiss Sonar F2.8 - 35mm and the camera has manual setting features with a built-in flash. I ordered the optional data-back and the flash adaptor with it, so i can use a more powerful flash. Here on the pictures i plugged a Contax TLA 200 on it. If you remove the flash adaptor, the camera becomes much smaller and can easily fit in any pocket, even if you wear skinny jeans (wich i dont).
This is a quick presentation of my last contributions to magazines.
Double is a french quaterly fashion magazine. This spring / summer issue has two different covers and a special 80 pages feature by Juergen Teller in La Havana in a documentary style. Other features by Serge Leblon, Paul Wetherell, Laura Sciacovelli, Horst Diekgerdes and Max farago.
Frog is also french and is published by the art critic Eric Troncy and Stephanie Moisdon. It focuses on contemporary art and architecture. This is issue features contributors such as Juergen Teller (again!), Olivier Zham who photographed the funerals of Malcom MacLaren, Dominique Issermann and more. I photographed the Hotel Renaissance realized by the architect Christian de Portzamparc.

My friends at Super released a kid version of their infamous flat-top sunglasses.
You can see the collection here : http://retrosuperfuture.com/super/kids/flat_top
Super is also collaborating with Paris-based creative studio and clothing brand Surface 2 Air. This collaboration results in the opening of a pop-up store in Paris, at the new S2A shop (108 rue vieille du temple, 75003 Paris).
I’ve also been told that Super guys are working on some designs with S2A, as well as some bad ass pieces designed in collaboration with a female designer/artist/songwrite, but nothing official yet, so don’t tell anybody.

These are a few making-of pictures i took during the Kitsune shooting i did this week-end for their upcoming winter collection.
