My challenge when I’m in a very touristy place like this in front of the Moulin Rouge in the bottom of the Butte Montmartre in Paris is to the picture I have seen anywhere.
Find the idea, angle, style ….
Most of the time I’m not a fan of color photos and black and white. But I wanted the red present. This color is his identity. The black and white can be lost over time. And yes, this tourist place that served as a model for many other cabarets in the world has the same age as the Eiffel Tower! She has known the Belle Epoque!
Photographing the Moulin Rouge through the mirror of a motorcycle underlines the past.
