“From 1978, I shot all Louis Vuitton campaigns in panoramic format, which seems to me to lend itself best to the ethos of travel, capturing vast spaces in all their grandeur. These five images are representative of my work for the House: shot all over the world, in Ladakh, Rajasthan, and Chile. The last photo is part of a series entitled ‘The Expedition’. I wanted to depict a rocket landing on a planet in a solar system other than our own. We looked for a place with a real impact crater, like on the Moon. We found it in Chile after walking for five hours through rocky terrain. I put a pictogram of Monogram canvas on the toy rocket. On the left of the picture, just out of frame, are the ruins of an Inca habitat, since this site was close to the high trail of the Incas.”
