I've always been fascinated by girls when they are barefoot. For me, being barefoot is the most attractive and alluring behaviour a girl can display. Years ago I started taking photos of barefoot girls, and became more and more interested in photography. My models are almost all "every day" girls I see around my native city, Paris, but many are also from other places like Berlin or New York, where I often travel. The way I work: Whilst walking through the city on hot days, whenever I see a pretty barefoot girl, I ask her to pose for me. So for a few moments, these girls become improvised models, showing off their sensuality by being photographed barefoot. I've stayed in contact with some of these ladies who have been nice enough to pose for me again, and I have carried out some longer shoots with some of them. More recently I have also been shooting with semi-professional models. The photographs focus mostly on barefoot girls that you can see relaxing in the environment where the shoot took place. Sometimes the picture focuses exclusively on their bare feet, but not necessarily. Many are simply portraits of girls posing barefoot. Indeed, the real point is not just about the "feet", but "girls being barefoot" as a behaviour or attitude, making them highly glamourous, beautiful and attractive.
