There’s this term, ‘Passion Project’, that is thrown around whenever a director or an actor signs on to do a film that truly means something to them; a project they just have to do, regardless of how anyone else perceives it or appreciates it because they are doing it for themselves. For me, this was my passion project. Jules et Jim is a film that means a great deal to me for many reasons. One of those reasons was that it opened my eyes to a new way of looking at film, a new way of reacting to it, and so because of that it shaped, in many ways, the way that I look at and chose to create art. I’ve wanted to pay homage to this film for a long time, in some way shape or form. Finally I was able to in this photoshoot with my daughter. Taking inspiration from the film and the film’s star, Jeanne Moreau, my daughter and I spent an afternoon in the heart of Sarasota telling a very special story.
