Meeting with Arthur in January 1991 for the release of his first eponymous album. He receives me in his apartment in foutraque, studio recording he shares with his mother (Nicole Courtois) who is also his agent (very vigilante) Excellent photo shoot, he needs to make himself known, so he is very Cooperative and we do many photos in different situations. I notice by a window of the apartment a beautiful sky heavy menacing clouds, I love! I make an "American night" with a very strong flash of flash (I am very influenced by the obscure light of Dutch painting) and it is this image that will be chosen by the editor of the newspaper. 2 anecdotes: His mother advises him annoyed to remove his beret that he has kept from the beginning! He will leave him for a cap! (This will be another image that I will also publish on the site) 2nd anecdote: His father Jacques H, very politicized in May 1968 like many students and artists, goes to the funeral of a Maoist high school student of 17 Years, Gilles Tautin, died drowned in the Seine, in front of the factories of Flins, following strikes and clashes with the CRS. At the time, this sad affair had overturned public opinion. Higelin goes to the funeral with a little man of 2 years on his shoulders = Arthur !!! I will also publish this image.
