I ask to myself if someone will see me?”
Title: THE ILLUSTRATED MAN Self-portrait in the forest of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, 1970
Born in the south of France where Jean-Jacques dreamed of being a bullfighter.
This dear child followed his family to an elegant village near Paris, St Germain-en-Laye.
There he met, some years later, his future muse, Dominique Mirambeau.
He was 20 years old when the revolution of May 1968 spilled out on the streets of Paris. Running with his Pentax camera, he became an anarchist photographer. Dominique, art student and model, began posing for him...
They played inventing romantic images depending
on the moment’s inspiration.
They shared interest for antics, like jewellery, dresses, paintings…
Seduced by the hippy movement, Jean-Jacques was often found wearing his bell bottomed blue jeans from the shop “Western House”.
The young couple went to live in a dusty loft in the "Halles" district of the capital’s center.
A blue van named Goleta appeared for escapades from the bustle of the city.
A year later, they found themselves driving far away and leaving France toward the sun of Spain.
