“For me, every now and again, during those critical first few moments when an artist takes the stage to ply his trade and bare his soul, the lighting is perfect, the angles align and the essence is captured. This has been my consuming passion and greatest reward since I began my career as a photojournalist.”
- Jérôme Brunet
