Yes, this year again Art Paris is gonna be a great success ! This fair held at the exceptional Grand Palais on the Champs Elysées will open to the public tomorrow for 5 days, but tonight we had the chance to be invited by Francois Rousseau, and we also had the good idea to arrived on time, it is not very Parisian to arrive on time as you can see on the photo above that I took when we left the fair, the Parisians arrived ... on a perfect Parisian timing !

FRANCOIS ROUSSEAU - THE INTERVIEW

Francois_rousseau_01
Chris NYC - Jan 06

Francois Rousseau has just updated his Internet site with more of his amazing work, including last photoshoot in NYC of Chris in the bonus section. For some time we wanted to know more about Francois, and we have decided to ask him a few question over a lunch. Here is what he had to say.

Francois_rousseau_06

What is the question that you would hate to answer?
FR: How does it feel to photograph French Rugby team naked?

What Inspires You?
FR: It is what I do not understand that inspires me.

Where do you "catch" your models?
FR: Thats the biggest part of my work. I prefer to discover models than to go to the agency and just pick them. I like to go to the gym, to assist a boxing training. The first thing I do when I come to a new city is to visit a local boxing gym. I like the guys that incarnate this contrast between beauty and tension, ... real man that can control there aggressiveness. They are at the time fragile and strong.

Unforgettable moment?
FR: Two projects: Habibi NYC ( discovering for the first time what it means to be in control of your creation ) and spring in Brazil for the Amor Causa (amazing filings and a real contact with models for over a month). Both times it was more than a simple photo shoot. I have found friends there, and real feelings. It was hard to leave all that.

Amor Causa

Your next project is ?
FR: Obsession with body, staging stories, big frescos, ... all that together made into a book. It is more than just a visual appeal, it is about my view of the society. Should take place mainly in Los Angeles. The Casting Call on your site is a huge success and I'm happy to say that there are already a few models that I plan on meeting for my new project. Thank you guys.

If you had no limits what would your perfect shoot look a like?
FR: I do not think that not having limitations is a good idea. Best things are born from the limits, that make you think and try to find the best ideas and solutions... It is more about moving the limits further with each project.

You have a huge gay fanbase. Do you embrace being a gay icon?
FR: I'm not sure that I'm a Gay Icon... what do you think?

Have you ever slept with your model?
FR: I have never tried to hide my sexual orientation, and I'm really comfortable with it. Taking a photo of someone is an exchange , sometimes it is like making love, an ecstasy, and most of the time even more excited than just having sex... All that said, the answer is YES ... it did happen but I find a certain distance with model necessary to take a good photo.

Chris NYC - Jan 06

Miami or Rio // Paris or NY ?
FR: Rio & New York

Religion as inspiration ?
FR: My work always had certain spirituality, and there will be more to come. While I was a painter it was omnipresent, but it was never about organized religion. Amor Causa is a good example of translating someone's believes onto photo paper. There are not so many artists nowadays able to have someone finance their projects (like it was happening centuries ago) It was commissioned by Renova's Owner, and I had open hands to do a project. That's when you get to explore things... The book was very well received , even by religious people and church. I have tried to present religion on a modern way... Have I succeeded?

Gay Marriage ?
FR: Vive le Mariage Gay. Hope that France will follow the example of Spain and UK (countries that are originally more religious and conservative). I can not wait that it gets generalized, accepted, banalized, and that's exactly what's going to happen.

What do you enjoy most in life?
FR: Being on a west cost watching a sunset over the ocean. Ecstasy.

Your preferred position?
FR: Standing !

CASTING CALL by FRANCOIS ROUSSEAU

Castingcall_fr_05

In collaboration with OhlalaParis.com, famous French photographer François Rousseau (Haibi, Princes of the Sea, Amor Causa, Nu, Dieux du Stade Callendar, ...) is launching a Franco-American CASTING CALL for his next project.

We are looking for guys between 18 and 35, any ethnicity, gay, straight, gay couples, athletes, dancers, etc. All guys living in and around Paris, New York, and Los Angeles are invited to send their photos and stats to this e-mail address. The photo shoots will take place in Spring 2006.

DON'T WASTE YOUR LIFE BEEING IGNORANT

This is the new message from Sida Info Service, the new ad campaign was photographed by François Rousseau. Clear and direct ... I forgot to mention that on the photo the text also says : "HIV Positive + HIV Positive non protected = DANGER"

AMOR CAUSA THE BEATITUDES BY FRANCOIS ROUSSEAU

Amorcausa3

Renova asked François Rousseau to think about photographic suite inspired by the Beatitudes. The result is a book charged of emotions amor causa, a mystical reinterpretation of the Beatitudes // The Bible Reloaded ! The portraits and settings belong to the slums of Rio de Janeiro. His actors are all chosen from the street, including the hot and charismatic modern day Christ.

Unfortunately the result will not be seen in France, as the BVP (Bureau de Verification de le Publicité) has forbidden the campaign, saying that it could hurt the religious' convictions of the public ! Can you believe that ?! Just as a reminder France advertises itself with : Liberté Egalité Fraternité Maybe the BVP should forbid this slogan since clearly no one can believe in this anymore ! FYI :: Spain and Portugal will run the ad !

However, François Rousseau's book amor causa, is available in stores.
