Shoes, Jardin du Luxembourg, Paris 1986  

Once a year, this European shoe manufacturer, Orcade chooses a top photographer to shoot its image campaign cover.  The photographer is given complete freedom to come up with an artistic shot, as long as a pair of shoes is present in the picture.  "I loaded my Nikon with Tri-x  film and with a pair of shoes under my arm, decided to head over to the Jardin du Luxembourg.  I like the challenge of something a bit different and had fun with the interplay of light and shadow.  One of the only requirements was that the composition of the photo work as both a horizontal (above) and also as a vertical, (draw a line down the middle from top to bottom, and take the right half of the frame)".
