Société de lecture – Recycle

Thanks to my friend Francisco Teixera from the Leica Store Genève for the picture shot on November 14, 208 at Société de lecture in Geneva.

My book Recycle is on the library shelf in the middle of books by masters of photography, Henri Cartier Bresson and Berenice Abbot, Robert Frank and Ansel Adams, Gilles Caron and Diane Arbus, Brassai and Eliott Erwitt. It is a great privilege to be among these great photographers.
