I chose Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott to shoot the models for the Mac booklet. Their photographs are striking and sexy. They would take Revlon’s products to another level with dramatic photos of glamorous models.

I chose Anthony Cotsifas to shoot the products. His specialty is still life photography and he’s worked with Revlon before. I think he’s a good choice because his style isn’t too out there, but his simple and elegant shots would compliment Mert and Marcus really nicely.

Film Noir | Vivre Sa Vie (1962)

Anna Karina, what a gal


Vivre Sa Vie, or My Life to Live, is a tremendously well written and beautifully shot french film noir. Starring Anna Karina and directed by Jean-Luc Godard, the film is a bleak look into the life of a young Parisian woman who aspires to be an actress.  Her story is told in 12 scenes, and each is proceeded by a brief description.

The Widow by Georges Simenon was published in 1942 and is an exquisite piece of french noir crime fiction. The entire work is laced with the troubling desires of emotionally and spiritually deranged characters. The prose is beautiful (even in translation), and the lovely descriptions create a picturesque backdrop for despicability; the dregs of sin. Simenon masterfully paints the turmoil of a recently paroled murderer who is searching for his place in a world that refuses to accept him, and contrasts it with the plight of an anxious widow whose family is plotting against her.

Tati Couderc is a somewhat portly widow who has inherited a lovely house and plot of land from her husband. Her trouble-making son Rene is away at war, and her aged and confused father-in-law helps her tend the animals. The sisters of her deceased husband desire the farmhouse for themselves, and have begun charting…
