Stranger #028

Still in Toulouse. Walking around Matabiau train station.... I saw this guy, this awesomely photogenic guy: he looks like an old french movie star (Belmondo) but with a charisma and a strongness.... I felt like a child in front of him!

I talk to him about the project, he agreed, and I start to take pictures.....

Me: "You can smile, if you want"

Him: "I smile only when there is a reason for!"


Anyway, I really enjoyed to take pictures of him, he had a real strong gaze, full of history :)

Only this stranger could make my day, but as you will see, the day has been really good for my project :)



This awesome guy was the #028 in my 100 strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at
