Tete-a-tete with Henri Cartier Bresson
Rome days were almost over
Hot dry sandy old Rome
One restored site to another
A rendezvous with Giuseppe Cavalli
From Vatican city to Piazza Venecia
Renaissance in the Palazzo de Roma
Against the Fontana de Trevi
A trip back in history
In the eyes of Henri Cartier Bresson
At Palazzo Braschi...
Times and places and faces…
Of how greatness looked like…
It’s the 50’s, Simone De Beauvoir at Rue Schoecher. So this is how she looked like… Albert Camus, Christian Dior and Edith Piaf in Paris. Edith Piaf looks so young a fresh unlike the tragic face she wears on the theater. Truman Capote in New Orleans.
It’s the 60’s, Igor Stravinsky is in California, Coco Chanel, Jean-Paul Sartre at Pont des Arts and Jean Genet at Café Flore in Paris. And there is Marilyn.
It’s the 70’s, Pablo Naruda having coffee in paris.
Rooms and rooms of stories hidden in faces throughout the years. Faces that defined philosophy art beauty and taste.
