chanel 7.9.1955 by suzi9mm chanel 7.9.1955 by suzi9mm
a long time ago, far away from here... well, not really, but, when i was going to paris in 2005, this is what `devilicious said;

"i hope you shoot something in front of the Chanel boutique :please:" [link]

i replied that i'll look into it but never told her what happened in paris...;)

but i did this for myself as well, i've always been a fan of chanel. the fancy boutiques are right next to each other and if you even take the cam out of the bag the security will come out of the store and stop you. so, in the end we just had to walk there without being able to plan, i quickly snapped 2 shots and then the security was coming already so we walked away. yea, it didn't turn out to be the greatest art piece ever. but a tiny but of fun anyway. flashing in a public place :P and, i'll go back one day - HA!


the parisian is ~A-positive

and yes i took off 50 years from the real date cos it seemed to fit.

not really, although I was happy I'd got the shot I needed before they asked me to go away.

What surprises me most is the lack of people. I'd imagine that the front of the Chanel boutique (as you call it) would be overcrowded. It's a cool shot :)

I'd just call it a shop, though I guess that wouldn't be very "Chanelish" :P Then again, what do I know of perfumes/fashion/porn/whatever Chanel is doing these days.

Well, I actually know a thing or two about porn...

thats a pretty funny pic, i love the flashing..so cheeky!So bizarre that they stop you from taking photos of the building!! I've heard of places doing that but only because they're heritage buildings or something.

well u can't see much of the building from their stuff...if i was further sway taking actual architecture photos i assume they could not say anything but i was right there in front of their shop. the front is their property :)

An intresting piece rounded nicely into great art by your explination... I can't help but feel it misses something I always look forward to in your art... can't quite put my finger on it....

I remember once, back when I worked in a library, we recieved an art book. I began scanning through it, like I do all books.

It was all the sort of artsy photographs and whatnot, black and white pictures, extreme angles and the like.

And then, suddenly, it was pictures of women dressed in business outfits. And they were peeing on things. On the street, on cars, in the forest. All in black in white.

I don't understand art.

Sneaky. I can understand why they wouldn't want you to take pictures though. For all they know you could be a spy from a rival fashion company trying to steal their ideas. I like this picture a lot.
