From the notebook of images that I collected over a certain time, as I was observing Yohji at work; I have saved my favorite for last. In a privileged moment, an electronic eye caught these guardian angels on the job.

An interesting movie about two creative people and their work
I can't say much about the movie. It is principally interesting because it shows the similarity of the creativity of two artists (a fashion designer and a film director) with the emphasis on the first one. It is in fact a creative documentary about the two of them. There was also an attempt to define fashion and identity in our modern world. It is a typical Wim Wenders movie. The photography is marked by his style. This movie or documentary becomes sometimes boring. The emphasis on the differences between the movie camera and the video camera was interesting but it was often tiring
