Paris starting point towards the face of Europe...
The portraits are not set in time or social context.
What little you can see of the neck or clothes says nothing of the models themselves.
The place alone can give an indication, which remains secret except for the inhabitants of each city.
The lens faces a look going into itself. The face is bare, open, given.
There is no trouble, not tension, just an enigmatic presence.
It does not teach nor does it inform, it is just the face.
