One of the highlights of the Festival du Polar in Villeneuve Lez Avignon last October was Scènes de Crime, a series of highly atmospheric and suggestive colour photographs by Hermance Triay.
Hermance is also a noted portrait photographer, so when she asked if I would – how does Madonna put it? – Strike the Pose? – I was only too pleased to comply. (Though my pose, as you’ll see, was scarcely Madonna-like at all.)
Given their subject, pretty damn good photos, though – silk purse, sow’s ear et cetera – and they’re watermarked, so please don’t try nicking them off the web. Any publishers, publicists and the like should apply for permission in the normal way.
