3 years ago I sent him a groupie message saying I loved his work and took pictures of his stencils. So he told me he was in town and proposed me to follow him and shoot him while doing stencils. We ended spending 2 days and one surreal night around Paris .
As a photographer it’s a privilege to be able to follow an artist doing his art, and it gets even more special when this art is forbidden and you can get caught at each moment.
Tonight was the opening of his exhibition “Dans les yeux” at gallery Bailly Contemporain. You can/must visit it till the 30th October if you’re around Paris.
A man approched me during the opening and asked me about my photos and asked me if I got the book presented. So I said “not yet, I do have Jef Aerosol’s previous book though, but not this one.” And I added: “you should offer it to me!” And the man told me “well you just rang at the right door as I’m the editor of the book”. So we started a very cool chat about urban art, music and photography…
This editor called Opus Delits is specialized in urban artists and does a very cool serie of books at less than 10€. This post now sounds like a commercial but quality books at cheap prices are rare enough to be mentionned.
