The Full Photo Session with Our Gondry, Le Petit GondryJuxtapoz // Monday, 03 Jan 2011
Editor's note regarding our unique art direction of a little kid in our Michel Gondry feature in the January 2011 issue of Juxtapoz: It's not everyday that a famous film director invites you to photograph their creative process. This article on Michel Gondry was no exception.
But luck would have it our Little Gondry allowed us to photograph his faux process instead, subbing for the real thing but all done in the spirit and dedication that Big Gondry would apply to his own projects. This is an intimate portrait of Le Petit Gondry at work, in our own special way.
All photos by Joey Garfield and Jon Singer.
