Late 2016 I went to a Fashionweek party with my PR friend Vera Vagner from totem fashion. It was a Marc Jacobs party at rue Saint Honoré in Paris. Although there were many models, she was the only one that attracted all the attention with her eccentric energy.
I met Chloé Gray on a Shoot in Beijing, China we did shoots together ever since as « arbe studio » She does Creative Direction, Styling, Graphic design and I do Photography.
Recently I moved to one of Paris most vibrant neighborhoods: Strasburg Saint Denis. Its one of the last rough places, full of prostitutes, dealers, junkies and of course hipsters.
Apparently my apartment has always been occupied by photographers or producers, as the land lord told me. The first thing I thought when I moved in was that this is a perfect place to shoot… so one week after I called Chloé and Geneviève.
It was funny because later during the shoot we found out that we were both born and raised in Berlin, Germany and that we have some friends in common.
