1990, gainsbourg lives alone in his mansion in the rue de Verneuil in Paris. Only a butler takes care of him during the day and brings back his medicines. He leaves the hospital after a heart attack, he no longer has the right to smoke! One of the few portraits he does not smoke! Interview and photo for the cover of the "7àParis" magazine. His house, all lined with black, is full of objects, on the furniture, hung on the walls, pictures, trinkets, golden disc, it was a fetishist maniac: There were among a multitude of others, A picture of Bamboo (his last companion) I took it to examine it closely and then I rested it, he then came to put it back exactly as it was before, a few cm, without saying anything ! Who would've believed that ? I asked him to pose natural, without braying (we knew each other, it was our 3rd encounter) I like his look on this image: a face of old lost child, maybe he feels the end approach?
