Projet Mediterranee: Cannes

I’m at the film festival in Cannes, trying to photograph some glitter and glamour for my new book. Just had my first red carpet experience here, knowing this is not my cup of tea. What’s the point of making the same photograph of the same actress, along with more than one hundred photographers? There is no room to move around and the celebrities never look into my lense. The streets are far more interesting. Everybody famous!120518_Cannes_330120519_Cannes_355120519_Cannes_161120519_Cannes_334120519_Cannes_340
