Salon Rouge

One might consider the Salon Rouge as a small temporary enclave, an eddy of consideration in which the projected & photographically captured persona comes to the fore… the one between the public face and the mirror gaze, doubtful and self-conscious, but caught in an unguarded moment while outside the city is locked down in a red alert and the world raves on. A classic studio-setup without the intimidating high-tech environment, closing in on that humorous “punktum” that was the original point of departure.
