Paris meetings

Two days of meetings in Paris.

With the publisher of the book of the project “The most beautiful people in the world”.
The renowned French legend Robert Delpire.
And long conversations about the book with Mr. Delpire’s collaborator Georges-Emmanuel Arnaud.
Discussing issues like how to present the most beautiful people in the book.
Will we group them by country or mix them?

There were also meetings with sponsor manager Chantal Dewéy.
A strategy had to be developed which company to approach to consider becoming a sponsor for the project “The most beautiful people in the world”.
What exactly do we want from a sponsor and what are we prepared to offer?
One issue in this discussion is that the companies to approach must have a product that relates to the project “The most beautiful people in the world” and to the political and social principles of everybody involved.
This is why a company like Coca Cola is excluded.
There is no beauty in obesity inducing liquids.

Again, there was also a meeting with Baudoin Lebon.
He has the art gallery that represents the conceptual photography of this artist-photographer.
Now that there is a complete new series of conceptual images made in Mexico this Spring, a strategy had to be developed how to present this to the art market.

There is still much to do in Paris.
The publisher asked to stay longer as the design of the book is in a critical stage.
To postpone all coming flights to Amsterdam, Los Angeles and San Jose del Cabo.

But after 3 months of non-stop traveling to India and in Europe, it feels it is very much time to return to Mexico and to the contemplative and healthy life lived there.
