In December 2007, I was working on the exhibition “Hommage à Jeanne Moreau”. The goal of this project was to capture the Italian actress Orsetta Borghero embodying famed actress Jeanne Moreau. During that time, I was living in Paris one week every month. The director of Spazio Dips in Milan asked me to find a way to link this exhibition to the city of Paris. When travelling in Paris in December I decided to find in all women I crossed a bit of the spirit of this city and even a bit of the spirit of Jeanne Moreau, the actress I loved in Truffaut’s movies.
