Photography, Book

LUCILE is a photography story by Sergio Calderón, published in 2016 as a photobook by ENTERTAINING VIOLENCE.

'I took these photographs on 15th November 2015 in Paris. At a house in the Quartier Pigalle. The subject was Lucile. Which I met in March 2015 for a film project I was working on. Around that time I began to think about making a story about her. I imagined different situations and scenarios. Devising an abstract story. But I didn’t share with her too much from it. Just some ideas and moods. I wanted to discover more about Lucile.

We didn’t have much time to work. I photographed Lucile on a day off from her final exams at ESMOD Paris. I brought her to a place, with a certain atmosphere, allowing enough space for her to improvise. Somehow she wrote her own script.'

— Sergio Calderón
