pictures by Miguel Cianca (click to see more of this work)
This was a very special day in my life. I met Miguel in a bar called "au rendez-vous des amis" in Montmartre. One of the best ones if you ask me. I was having tea and he was taking pictures of the guests. (Then he would print them and cover the bar's walls with them). I saw his pictures and wanted him to help me take some portraits of me for the flowershop project. He accepted directly and said that he was free the next day.
So the following morning we met up infront of the bar. It was the first of may and I wore a lily of the valley crown. The streets were still empty and sleepy and the session went very well. On our way back we stopped by au rendez vous des amis for a morning coffee where we also had a nice chat with this nice, old man. (referring to the picture above)
I never really got to use the pictures, so tonight they are all yours. hihi.
I think the bar has changed owner and interior since then. but here is the address if you want to check it out for yourself!
