Françoise Huguier was very nice. It’s an honor for me to meet her. She’s such a low-profile person. When I read her biography, I was stunned. From fashion to reportage, from snapshots to directing, she has the same foresight eyes and give a personal touch to all of her works that never loses a sense of humor. We watched her photos in videos while enjoy cakes and snacks.
