Enrique Menossi and the shoe designer

What happens when a creative meets a creative? Definitely something creative! Photographer Enrique Menossi captured shoe designer Rodolphe Menudier's Paris apartment and it is boho bliss.

Johnny Miller

Dear Mr Miller,

This is a love note. I love your sense of colour. I have never felt green before. Perhaps I have but your greens, oh my, they thrill me. I love the light in your photos. Soft like a whisper, a promise, a dream. I love your composoition, your depth of field. No. No. Those are technical ideas. It's more than that. I want to rip through my screen and just be in your shots. Somewhere an old clock is ticking, children are laughing outside and a dust mote hangs in the air. I just sit and breath in the beauty.

Jo
