Portrait of an Actress

“The most difficult thing for me is a portrait.
You have to try and put your camera between the skin of a person and his shirt.”
(Henri Cartier-Bresson – French photographer, 1908-2004)

This is a portrait of my friend Anne Marquot-Picasso who is a French actress, dancer and author.
It comes from a series where I was trying to break her traditional image and show the richness of her inner self.
She performed in several classic and contemporary theatre plays and created “Bille en Tête”, a theatre company aimed at a young audience.
Anne is also found of India and knows Varanasi, she practices Kalarippayatt (an Indian martial art) and is a trained Kathak dancer.
