1990, gainsbourg lives alone in his mansion rue de Verneuil in Paris. Only a butler comes to take care of him during the day and brings back his medication. He gets out of the hospital after a heart attack, he is no longer allowed to smoke! one of the rare portraits where he does not smoke! Interview and photo for the cover of the magazine "7àParis". His house, all lined with black is full of objects, on the furniture, hanging on the walls, photos, trinkets, disc of gold, it was a fetishist maniac: There was among a multitude of others, posed on a table in a small frame, a picture of Bamboo (his last companion) I took it to examine closely and then I rested, he then came to put it exactly as it was before, a few cm, without saying anything ! Who would've believed that ? I asked him to pose natural, without showing off (we knew each other, it was our 3rd meeting) I like his look on this picture: a face of a lost old child, maybe he feels the end approaching?
