Henri Chapier passed away. He was one of the first journalists I met.
It was at the end of the 60s, I introduced myself at Combat, the mythical newspaper of the time.
I was barely 20 years old, I was received by Chapier.
Are you a virgin? were his first words, flushing scarlet, I was paralyzed.
10 very long seconds went on.
You do not even know your astrological sign? He said (note: In French, the Virgo zodiac sign is named Virgin)
I became an intern for a few months at Combat.
Henri, I met him again in 1978 when he created with his accomplice Jean Luc Monterosso; Paris Audiovisuel which gave birth to the European House of photography and the Month of Photography.
I send you kisses Henri.
