Why 3 S's? For the reason I would have put only one if that was only me.
So this is an obvious tribute to Tanya Chalkin
, photographer that I thought everyone knew about and I discovered no one of the people surrounding me knew.
So this guy on the left has that girlfriend on the middle. I happen to like both very, very
much. They happen to stand me quite well. And sometimes, we sleep all three together. And not really because it's cold.
Technically, this was pure madness to set up. See, this picture is obviously taken with the subjects lying down, with rather a large frame. Which supposes the camera to be quite up. In a Parisian apartment. And, since I don't like things when they are too simple, I had to be the photographer AND a third of the model.
Now, proper self-portraits are to me the most difficult thing to do : you can't really aim, you don't decide when the camera shoots, etc.
Aw, and, of course... Ever tried to make three people fit in a frame meant for two? Especially when the two thirds of the model don't actually understand they really should be close to each other.
This was, however, very fun to shoot. First of all, because hugging your friends 200 times a night (200 times, yes. I didn't count, that's just how many pictures we took) is quite pleasing, and because I managed to do something quite similar to what I had in mind.
I accept any form of criticism, as long as they're not injurious to the two left third of the model. I'm on the right, say whatever you want
