Baudouin : 75 portraits de parisiennes


“Each portrait is a short story.” So claims the preface of this new book, the culmination of six years of work on a much-coveted theme. Baudouin, a well-known portrait photographer in the French media, must have walked through many doors before arriving at this selection. From Sonia, a student posing like Napoleon in her classically decorated apartment, to Vyva, a woman from another generation, sitting on a tiger’s head, these are the 75 women Baudouin reveals with his square-format 6x6 camera, the modern Parisian women. In each of these images, we delight watching, noticing, analyzing, comparing and exclaiming. The poses taken by the subjects are consistent with the photographer’s madness. For Baudouin, the Parisian woman isn’t fixed in time; she expresses herself and lives through the ages. In the end it’s the sequence of all these visions that makes this book a pure snapshot of life.
