There is no doubt when looking at Philippe’s pictures you may think of Peter Lindberg’s photography.
He is the first to admit where he gets its inspiration from.
However, his style is unique.
After graduating from France's University school of economics,
Philippe began his career working in the movie business,
assisting Movie Director Roger Vadim for 5 years.
That’s how he learned one of Vadim's great skill in: how to direct actors and models.
You may like Philippe's esthetics, his aestheticism, his simplicity and sense of spontaneity in his images.
But above all, you will do total abstraction of Philippe's technicality and only see the emotion he arrives to transcribe.
There is not a shot that he took where the eyes, the face and body tension is expressing a feeling, a story.
It is always about the story, and with no emotion, there is no narrative.
