Bella Freud - Fashion Television Feature
This was one of the most inspiring projects Ive done in my life. Bella Freud, London-based designer, and daughter of painter Lucien Freud asked me to collaborate on the project that would feature her new collection of knitwear. I called it The Journey To The End Of The Night - as a tribute to my favorite book by Louis Ferdinand Celine. For 8 months, I traveled in Europe and US and took self portraits only at nights - just me and my tripod. It was not always safe, I got mugged by a gang of eight in London - right at the moment when I was photographing myself - the only thing I managed to keep was the camera with the photo safe and sound inside. Another time I was chased by a motorcycle gang that was raiding London then by breaking into poshest boutiques at nights. After each scary experience I would come home and swear that I will not do it again... But of course I couldn't stop, it was like a drug - to own the night and create beautiful images.
