Fernandel

Yes, yes, yes, regionalism, I know! But still, it’s not my fault that I was raised in a Fernandel film. Literally! The quarrels, the bursts of laughter, all that is in his films and songs, is the essence of a world that has not disappeared (whatever we say) where I I was born. And this sense of the word, to always fall on his legs … it is also the songs of Vincent Scotto but his face speaks less to the crowd …

These portraits are part of a series of 89 characters (and a little more) that inspired my childhood.
