Raymond Taudin Chabot and… me?
Raymond Taudin Chabot is a very talented photographer. I have known him for years and frequently posed for him when he needed a guy in a suit.
A few years ago he asked me to come to an office building somewhere in Amsterdam and bring ‘an old suit’. When I arrived there were 2 other people wearing suits and Raymond who was positioned on a ladder and simply said ‘Jump around’.
So we did.
Now Raymond has an exhibition in Rotterdam at the Art fair there and one of the photos made that day is shown there, quite large I have heard.
My parents visited the exhibition and didn’t even recognize me until some said ‘Nice photo of Boris!’ and they looked closer.
Journalist Francisco van Jole did recognize me and posted a photo on Flickr.
