iLHP is very proud to say that this is the first detailed interview of this magnificent, poetic and graceful ballet dancer. He used to practice ballet and modern dance routines on the streets of Paris, where tourists would often photograph and film him. This gave him the idea of capturing portraits of himself and start a 365 day photo project showing his elegant, gravity-defying dance moves in spectacular snapshots.
“Whatever you’re doing, someone else probably already did it better than you. But that doesn’t mean that you cannot work to be better than them.”
iLHP: Thank you very much Mickael for taking the time to answer our questions! Please, tell us a bit about yourself.
If there is one type of photography I most want to explore, it would have to be astro photography. I don’t just mean taking photos of galaxies and nebulae from a mountain top with a telescope adapter, but I mean actually taking photos while floating in space. As a mere earthbound mortal, I’m not sure if commercial space exploration will be available in my life time. But in the meantime, we can live vicariously through the photos taken by the lucky astronauts in the International Space Station.
