Page 5: October ‘71 to June ‘73 : High School, Upper-level Maths and Maths Specialization in Arras. The education system in France is poor.

For 2 years, the Math teacher spoke only with the gifted student in the class, ignoring the other 40 students. Our Physics teacher declared he was against the Theory of Relativity and refused to teach it. I had to learn everything on my own, especially photography!

My sincere thanks to the great American Scientists: Carl Sagan, Dr. Isaac Asimov, Timothy Ferris, Arthur C. Clarke, Richard Feynman, Stephen Hawking, etc.... who taught me so much better.

Excerpt from my Math handouts from the time.

I met Claude Slowick, who later (in 2013) would defend a doctorate’s thesis on one of the aspects of Newton’s Natural Philosophy. Claude is a Mathematician of course, but also a swimming champion, a judo master, a private plane pilot, and a great philosopher with whom I had the pleasure of exchanging many funny and moving letters. Thanks, Claude.

Richard Feynmann (1918 – 1988) is one of the most influential physicists from the end of the 20th century, owing to his work on relativistic quantum field theory of electrodynamics, quarks and superfluid helium.
He completely reformulated quantum mechanics with his path integral formulation which generalizes the action principle of classical mechanics, and he invented diagrams which still bear his name today and are used in quantum field theory (including electrodynamics).
Feynman was a musician (bongo player), a remarkable pedagogue, and the writer of numerous works for popularizing the sciences.
Later in life he became known for his role on the panel investigating the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster.
He tells of his many adventures in his long list of written works : Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! and What Do You Care What Other People Think?. This book relates the moral support given to him by his first wife Arlene, encouraging him in his intellectual projects as a free-thinker.

Quantum mechanics is the branch of physics that seeks to study and describe the fundamental phenomena at work in physical systems, particularly at the atomic and subatomic levels.
Throughout its development, quantum mechanics turned out to be very productive in results and diverse practical applications. Among other things, it elucidated the mystery of the structure of the atom, and it revealed itself to be the general frame necessary to describe elementary particle behaviour, even so far as becoming the base of modern physics.

I can’t wait until everyone is rational, or until just enough are rational to make a difference. –Isaac Asimov

Isaac Asimov, born the 2nd of January 1920 in Petrovitchi (Russia), died the 6th of April 1992 in New York in the United States. He was an American writer, naturalized in 1928, well-known for his works of science fiction and his books for the popularization of science.
Asimov’s work on robots groups together numerous novellas and many novels :
The Caves of Steel, 1953
The Naked Sun, 1956
Robots of Dawn, 1983
Robots and Empire, 1986
The ensemble forms one greater story, the Robot series, which takes place over many millennia.
He completely renewed this theme by inventing “positronic robots” governed by three laws protecting human beings, and, in theory, perfect and inviolable. Asimov created interesting scenarios by imagining situations which revealed the faults of these laws (example: can a robot remain passive and let a human smoke a cigarette?) and the particularities of robot behaviour that seemed to transgress these laws, slowly allowing the reader to discover how this is possible in the style of a police investigation.
Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics are:
1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

The Chaos Theory in Mathematics studies the behaviour of deterministic dynamic systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions, which are unpredictable in the long term. Obviously we didn’t catch a whiff of this in Arras, Pas-de-Calais in 1973.

Christian Fournier : "Boris Vian was a real genius, capable of a great diversity. If it weren’t for his poems, his books, his songs, I don’t think I would have made it through my obligatory military service.
As he didn’t take himself seriously, the editors at the time couldn’t understand him. In France at the time, to laugh was seen as vulgar, and to wear more than one hat meant you were a dabbler.
Comme il ne se prenait pas au sérieux, les éditeurs de l'époque ne l'ont pas compris. En France, à l'époque, rire était vulgaire, et être multi-casquette, du bricolage.
I have always felt very close to his works.
His collection of short stories, “Les fourmis” is a masterpiece in my opinion.


Pourquoi je vis Pourquoi je vis
Pour la jambe jaune D’une femme blonde Appuyée au mur Sous le plein soleil
Pour la voile ronde D’un pointu du port
Pour l’ombre des stores
Le café glacé Qu’on boit dans un tube
Pour toucher le sable
Voir le fond de l’eau Qui devient si bleu Qui descend si bas Avec les poissons Les calmes poissons Ils paissent le fond Volent au-dessus
Des algues cheveux Comme zoizeaux lents Comme zoizeaux bleus
Pourquoi je vis Parce que c’est joli.

Boris Vian

Boris Vian (born the 10th of Mars 1920 in Ville-d’Avray, dead the 23rd of June 1959 in Paris) was a French writer, poet, songwriter, singer, critic, and jazz musician (trumpeter). Engineer from the École Centrale (Promotion 42B), he was also a screenwriter, translator (Anglo-American), lecturer, actor and painter. Under the pseudonym Vernon Sullivan, he published numerous novels in the American style, among them J’irai cracher sur vos tombes (I Spit on Your Graves) which caused a scandal and was banned. He often used other pseudonyms, sometimes anagrams, for his many works.
For 15 years, he was also active in the support of jazz, which he started to play in 1937 at the Hot Club in France. His columns, which appeared in newspapers like Combat, Jazz-hot, Arts, were brought together in a collection in 1982: Écrits sur le jazz (Writings on Jazz). He also created forty-eight radio show episodes called Jazz in Paris, for which the script, written in English and in French, were meant for a radio in New York ; these were also gathered into a bilingual edition collection in 1996. His literary works, which were not appreciated in his lifetime, were received much better by the youth of the sixties and seventies. L’Écume des jours (Froth in the Daydream) in particular, with its plays on words and its key characters, made him into a legend. These days it is still a classic that we study in middle school.

Even though, during his brief existence, he practiced many diverse activities, his name is today among the most significant authors in French literature. Boris Vian adored the absurd, celebration, and playing. He is also the inventor of words and systems which have become imaginary machines and words that have become part of today’s popular speech. He was the inventor of many projects whilst he attended the École Centrale d’Ingénieurs. He even put in a patent for a system that allowed boats to pass through water-locks by transporting them above the lock. Of fragile health, overprotected by his mother and by his doctors, he never took it easy, as though he was in a hurry to undertake every possible activity with death breathing down his back. He died at 39 years old of a heart attack.

Here I am visiting Boris Vian’s grave in Ville d’Avray with his book of poems « Je voudrais pas crever ». His grave is simple, sober, and nameless. He died at only 39 years old.

Don’t complain about getting older, not everyone has the privilege.

I pay my respects on Boris Vian's grave in Ville D'Avray, showing his book of poems "I don't want to die...". The tomb is very sober and nameless. Boris Vian died when 39 years old.
Do not complain about getting old, everyone does not have that privilege.

On 18, 19 and 20 September 2007, I shoot a reportage at the Ecole Centrale de Paris in CHÂTENAY-MALABRY, and I discover this appropriate quote because Boris Vian was graduated from this same school of high end engineers.

The end of pain, the newspapers in colour, all the children happy, and so many other things that sleep in the skulls of the brilliant engineers.

Alright, I won’t make you guess : It’s a dandelion.

The books "La Camargue" and "Née de la vague" by Lucien Clergue made a great impression on me.
I had the chance to meet Lucien Clergue in 1999 at one of his conferences in Paris
I made a pilgrimage on November 28 2015 to visit his expo at the Grand Palais in Paris.

Lucien Clergue, né le 14 août 1934 à Arles et mort le 15 novembre 2014 à Nîmes, est un photographe français.
En 1949, il apprend les rudiments de la photographie. En 1953, lors d'une corrida aux arènes d'Arles, il force le destin en mettant ses photos sous le nez de Pablo Picasso. Celui-ci est subjugué et demande à en voir d'autres. Pendant un an et demi, le jeune Clergue travaille dans le but d'envoyer des photos à Picasso et de nourrir sa curiosité.
C'est durant cette période que parallèlement aux « charognes », il crée la série des « Saltimbanques » ou « La grande récréation ».
Le 4 novembre 1955, pour la première fois, Lucien Clergue se rend à Cannes chez Picasso qui le reçoit à bras ouverts. Leur amitié durera près de trente ans, jusqu'à la mort du Maître en 1973. Le livre Picasso mon ami (Éditions Plume) retrace les moments importants de leur relation.
Les Baux-de-Provence, Rencontres d'Arles, en 1975. Dès 1968, il fonde avec son ami Jean-Maurice Rouquette, conservateur des Musées d'Arles et l'écrivain Michel Tournier les premiers éléments des Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie qui deviendront les Rencontres d'Arles et se tiennent chaque année à Arles au mois de juillet. Il invite à Arles les photographes les plus célèbres des États-Unis (Ansel Adams, André Kertesz, Robert Mapplethorpe…), du Japon (Eikoh Hosoe)… Ils donneront les premiers « atelier de photo » à Arles.
Lucien Clergue a œuvré sans cesse pour la reconnaissance de la photographie comme un art à part entière au même titre que la peinture la gravure ou la sculpture. Il y parviendra en l'inscrivant en tant que telle au Ministère de la Culture, puis en contribuant à la création de l'École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie à Arles en 1982.
Lucien Clergue est certainement le seul autodidacte en France à être reçu Docteur en Photographie à l’Université de Provence, Marseille, en 1979. Sa thèse publiée sous le titre Langage des sables ne comporte aucun mot mais des images, c'est l'écriture avec la lumière, elle sera préfacée par Roland Barthes. Il est régulièrement invité dans les plus grandes universités étrangères telles que Harvard et donne de nombreuses conférences à l’étranger.
Lucien Clergue en janvier 2013 à Luxembourg (photo François Besch). La ville d'Arles lui consacre en 2007 une très importante rétrospective à travers 360 photographies datées de 1953 à 2007. Il est exposé aux Rencontres d'Arles de 1971 à 1973, en 1975, 1979, de 1982 à 1986, en 1989, 1991, 1993, 1994, 2000, 2003 et 2007 et en 2014 pour ses 80 ans .
Ses œuvres figurent dans les collections de nombreux musées français et étrangers et chez des collectionneurs privés. Il est nommé chevalier de la Légion d'honneur en 2003 et est élu membre de l'Académie des Beaux-Arts de l'Institut de France, le 31 mai 2006, à l'occasion de la création d'une nouvelle section consacrée à la photographie (no VIII).
Sa réception sous la coupole a eu lieu le 10 octobre 2007. Titulaire du premier fauteuil dédié à la photographie, Lucien Clergue a retracé dans son discours l'histoire de la photographie.

“We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.”
Stephen Hawking, né le 8 janvier 1942 à Oxford, est un physicien théoricien et cosmologiste britannique.

Stephen Hawking, born the 8th of January 1942 in Oxford, was a British theoretical physicist and cosmologist.
Stephen Hawking was a mathematics professor at the university of Cambridge from 1980 to 2009, member of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, and distinguished researcher at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. He is known for his contributions to the fields of cosmology and quantum gravity, in particular for his work pertaining to black holes. He has also been very successful in his works for the popularizations of science in which he discusses his own cosmological theories in general, like in the bestseller A Brief History of Time, which stayed on the Sunday Times bestseller lists for 237 consecutive weeks.

Hawking suffers from neuromuscular dystrophy which has been attributed to a rare form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) ; this early-onset but slow-moving disease has progressed over the years, leaving him almost completely paralyzed.
He is an internationally recognized theoretical physicist whose scientific career has been going on for more than 40 years. His books and numerous public appearances have made him into a university celebrity.

Stephen Hawking in 'The Grand Design': God did not create the universe, because gravity means it would have happened on its own, just as a quantum fluctuation happens all the time in reality. The Big Bang was a natural event which would have happened without the help or involvement of God, he argues. The big bang is a singularity, like a black hole. At singularity, time stops. There cannot have been a "before". No room for a god.

Stephen Hawking: "Religion believes in miracles, but these aren't compatible with science. Heaven is a fairytale for those who are afraid of the dark."

As far as I’m concerned, evolution is blind : X-rays, alpha rays, UV rays, cosmic rays or simply a badly-copied strand of DNA make it so that from time to time, an individual differs from its parents. It’s a mutant: for example a sheep with 5 legs that can’t run very well, or a sheep with superior hooves that allow it to run better. As time goes on, individuals whose mutations helped them survive, they survive, and the others, who suffer unfairly and stupidly, they die. Mutations are errors, the result of chance, and often horrific. But after millions of generations, a species evolves and is better adapted to its environment. This is natural selection as explained by Darwin. It advances, blindly, without any prior planning, without any reflection, without any consideration for mutants which might die after suffering horribly. And this takes millennia. For me, this process does not seem to be the work of an intelligent being. If God put this into place he is a sadistic idiot.

More about religion, the sciences…

Christian Fournier : "I know, I know I’m NAIVE".

In France, nobody is interested in science.

I have my car license since 1973. At that time we drove to the right, we passed to the left and we stopped at red lights. Pedestrians knew which way to look before crossing. Simple and rational. Almost a law of the universe.
Nowadays, in Paris, with bus and taxi and bike lanes, this is no longer: right, left, in the middle. And many cyclists do not even stop at traffic lights any more. Pity.

Boulevard Saint-Marcel in Paris is a fine example of absurdity, a hell for motorists and a nightmare for pedestrians.
Crossings in shambles, traffic lights badly synchronized, a confusing signage and a confusing two-way bus lane built on one side of the road .... Too bad.
Cartesian minds, what happened?

2018 in Furet du Nord, Lille, one of the biggest bookstores in all of Europe, and there’s no science section.

The sad reality is that
every newspaper in the world has a daily column on astrology
but not a single one carries even a weekly column on astronomy.

Science teaches us to think rationally

Il y a des gens qui y croivent !!!!!!!!!

Neil deGrasse Tyson is an American astrophysicist, born in New York on October 5th, 1958. He has been the director of the Hayden planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History in New York since 1996. He is one of the most popular American scientists, often considered the successor of Carl Sagan. He has presented the show NOVA scienceNOW on PBS since 2006.

Photo est un magazine bimestriel français consacré à la photographie.
Le magazine traite de la photographie sous ses nombreux aspects, du photojournalisme à la photographie d'avant-garde, en passant par la mode, la nature, le nu artistique, qui caractérise la plupart de ses couvertures.
Il rend compte des grandes actualités de la photographie et des tendances en France et dans le monde, aborde la technique photographique (la photographie mobile, la photo d'applications, l'argentique, le numérique) et fait appel aux grands photographes en leur donnant la parole.
Photo, par sa longévité et sa présence à l’international, est, selon sa signature, « la référence de l'image depuis 1967 ».

J'ai photographié Eric-Colmet-Daage, rédacteur en chef du magazine PHOTO en 2010

Éric Colmet Daâge, né en 1948 à Paris, est Editor At Large du magazine Photo après en avoir été longtemps rédacteur en chef.
Après des études secondaires au lycée Saint-Jean-de-Passy et à la suite d'une rencontre de son père avec Henri Cartier-Bresson, il devient assistant du photographe Benjamin Auger à Salut les Copains.
En 1967, il est assistant du directeur artistique de Photo, Régis Pagniez, puis de Guy Trillat. En 1970, il prend la direction artistique de Son-Magazine.
En 1972, il devient directeur artistique de Photo, rédacteur en chef du magazine depuis la naissance du magazine. En 1992, il participe avec Éric Neveu à la création de Newlook3. Parallèlement, de 1985 à 2000, il crée et dirige dans Lui la rubrique « La Défonce du Consommateur » qui présentait chaque mois des objets insolites et originaux, puis les nombreux hors-série de Lui consacré à ces mêmes objets.
En 2014, il est nommé Editor At Large de Photo.

Throughout my youth, David Hamilton’s photos were everywhere in France, on everything from chocolate wrappers to boxes of pencils for schoolchildren. Young, pretty women in the flower of youth, a vaporous, foggy style, refined, often imitated but never equalled.

Sometime in the last 40 years France must have changed its mind, because you don’t see them anywhere anymore.

David Hamilton spent his childhood in London. Employed by an architectural firm, he became aware of his artistic talents and at twenty moved to Paris where he worked as a graphic designer under Peter Knapp for the magazine Elle.
Once he had made a name for himself, and while he was still working for Elle, he was hired as artistic director for Queen in London.
However, he soon realized that he prefered the Parisian lifestyle and soon left. Once back in Paris, he became the artistic director for the luxury department store chain Printemps.
And even while he was still employed, he began his career as a professional photographer. His airy, dreamlike style would soon become an immediate hit.
His photographs were in demand for magazines like Réalités, Twen, Photo, and others.
Near the end of the sixties, his style was clearly and unmistakeably recognizable. David Hamilton was inspired by paintings for his compositions and always sought to mix the arts.
David Hamilton is presently recognized as a major forerunner of the photography of contemporary art.

Arras, France, in 1986. My birthplace

I returned to Arras in 1994, the people there are very nice.

Arras in 2014, magnificent.

Look what I found in 2015. That’s my old slide rule, unused since I got my Masters is Mathematics in 1974! I don’t think I even know how to use it anymore.
In the background, you can see my 30" anti-glare screens. My state-of-the-art Macintosh computer, the cylindrical tower bearing an unfortunate resemblance to a garbage can, ashtray, or at best a silver vase, is hidden below the desk. My Nikon cameras are, when used in a studio like they are here, directly connected to my computer, which allows me to take and view my photos (even 3000 80MB photos) in real time. This way I can be much more efficient and quick for my clients.
Nothing but technological breakthroughs since 1974!

Goldbach's conjecture
is one of the oldest and best-known unsolved problems in number theory and all of mathematics. It states: Every even integer greater than 2 can be expressed as the sum of two primes. A prime is a whole number which is only divisible by 1 and itself.
Let's try with a few examples: • 4 = 2 + 2 and 2 is a prime, so the answer to the question is "yes" for the number 4. • 6 = 3 + 3 and 3 is prime, so it's "yes" for 6 also. • 8 = 3 + 5, 5 is a prime too, so it's another "yes". The conjecture has been shown to hold up through 4 × 1018 (4,000,000,000,000,000,000), but remains unproven despite considerable effort.
Mathematicians have failed to disprove it for even numbers up to 400 thousand million million million and common sense would happily call it Goldbach's fact. Nevertheless it has been never been proved.

Carl Sagan made sarcastic use of the Goldbach Conjecture in his riposte to people who claim to be in contact with powerful aliens: "then ask them for the mathematical proof of the Goldbach's conjecture"

Jane Birkin, née le 14 décembre 1946 à Londres, est une actrice et chanteuse britannique francophone, installée en France depuis la fin des années 1960 et naturalisée française.
Après des débuts cinématographiques en Angleterre notamment dans le film Blow Up, elle entame une carrière en France où elle rencontre son futur mentor, compositeur de chansons et partenaire, Serge Gainsbourg. L'une de ses premières collaborations avec Gainsbourg, le 45 tours Je t'aime… moi non plus, devient un succès international et atteint la première place au Royaume-Uni.
Dans les années 1970, elle devient une actrice reconnue par le grand public en jouant dans des comédies de Claude Zidi puis de Michel Audiard. Elle apparaît alors dans plusieurs films de publicité.

Serge Gainsbourg, de son vrai nom Lucien Ginsburg, né et mort à Paris (2 avril 1928 - 2 mars 1991), est un auteur-compositeur-interprète, poète, pianiste, artiste peintre, scénariste, metteur en scène, écrivain, acteur et cinéaste français. Il accède à la notoriété en tant qu'auteur-compositeur-interprète, abordant de nombreux styles musicaux. Il s'essaiera également au cinéma et à la littérature, et réalisera plusieurs films et vidéo-clips et composera plus de quarante musiques de films. Au milieu des années 1950, il utilise les pseudonymes Julien Gris puis Julien Grix avant de choisir Serge Gainsbourg comme nom d'artiste. Dans les années 1980, il s'invente aussi un alter ego appelé Gainsbarre.

Gainsbourg traversera la vie de chanteuses et actrices très connues, de Brigitte Bardot à Jane Birkin, avec qui il a son troisième enfant, Charlotte Gainsbourg. Après leur séparation, il rencontre Caroline von Paulus dite «Bambou», qui lui donne son quatrième et dernier enfant, Lucien Gainsbourg, dit «Lulu»

Le 4 juin 2015, je photographie Jane Birkin Baptise la Rose Amnesty International, lancée dans le cadre des 80 ans Delbard à "Jardins, Jardin aux Tuileries"

Ce rosier, créé à l’occasion du 80e anniversaire des Pépinières et Roseraies Georges Delbard et en partenariat avec les jardineries Delbard, est plus qu’un outil de communication. Delbard s’engage en effet à reverser 1€ à Amnesty International pour chaque rosier vendu.

The Benny Hill Show est une émission de télévision britannique mettant en vedette Benny Hill et diffusée sous diverses formes entre le 15 janvier 1955 et le 1er mai 1989 dans plus de 140 pays. Le spectacle consistait principalement en des sketches pleins de slapstick, de mime, de parodie et de double sens.

Peanuts (aussi connu sous le nom de Snoopy et les Peanuts ou simplement Snoopy ; et au Québec, sous le nom de Charlie Brown) est un comic strip (bande dessinée) écrit et dessiné quotidiennement, sans interruption et sans assistance, par l'Américain Charles M. Schulz (1922 - 2000) d'octobre 1950 jusqu'à sa mort, en février 2000. Il aura écrit au total 17 897 strips dont 2 506 pages du dimanche.

Peanuts est une série de gags qui tournent autour de deux personnages centraux, un garçon maladroit, malchanceux et dépressif, Charlie Brown et son chien, Snoopy. Le strip s'appuie sur le principe du running gag (comique de répétition) où les mêmes situations entre les personnages reviennent tout au long de la bande dessinée. De plus, chacun des personnages a ses particularités, ses obsessions et ses accessoires propres, qui reviennent chaque fois qu'ils apparaissent.

Peanuts a donné également naissance à des dessins animés, dont plusieurs ont reçu un Emmy Award, à des pièces de théâtres et à des comédies musicales.

Le comic a été, à partir des années 1960, un succès mondial, notamment aux États-Unis. La popularité du strip et le nombre colossal de licences pour des publicités ou produits dérivés ont fait de Charles M. Schulz une des célébrités les plus riches du monde.

À la mort de Schulz, le comic était publié dans plus de 2 600 journaux, dans 75 pays différents et dans 21 langues.


Here are about 620 examples of my photographic event coverage since 1984.
