Early 2012, I received an email addressed to former ENP students: “What have you done in photography?” asks the school 30 years after I entered its hallways. Wow… I could write a book, 30 years of my life… The school is celebrating us, I thought, how cool ! The year began well: two exhibitions at PhotoMed in the spring, another in the fall for the Mois de la Photo, perhaps Arles, and now, the cherry on top! I was happy, working on the project, believing! Spring, second email: “The selection was difficult, and our first decision was to accept only students with degrees.” Mea culpa, I had forgotten that episode, flunking out in 85. It’s coming back to haunt me! I picked up my phone to give them a piece of mind, but no one answered and I left the following day for Morocco, making no further phone calls.
