Morrissey and me { 46 images } Created 8 Jan 2009

I have always loved Morrissey. It might sound very "mainstream" but as tens of thousands of gloomy teenagers, The Smiths changed my life. Morrissey was singing about himself but he was talking to me. I loved his songs, his words, his music. Later in the 90s, I was not that fond of him and his stuff. It was like a separation. Then he came back, that was quite unexpected. He played at the Royal Festival Hall in June 2004. It was magic. I fell in love with the man again and decided I should take this love for him forward. I got in touch in touch with fans who love him to the point they look like him, behave like him. I asked them which pictures of Morrissey inspired them and then we recreated the shots. Here are their portraits.

J'ai toujours aimé Morrissey. Cela peut sembler un peu "bateau" mais comme des dizaines de milliers d'adolescents déprimés, The Smiths ont changé ma vie. Les chansons de Morrissey parlaient de lui et elles me parlaient aussi. J'adorais ses chansons, ses paroles, ses mélodies. Plus tard, dans les années 90, je me suis éloignée du grand homme, je n'étais plus vraiment fan de son travail. C'était comme une séparation. Et puis, il est revenu. C'était plutôt inattendu. Il a joué au Royal Festival Hall en juin 2004. C'était magique. Je suis retombée amoureuse de lui et j'ai décidé de pousser cet amour plus loin. J'ai contacté des fans qui aiment Morrissey au point de lui ressembler, d'adopter les mêmes attitudes. Je leur ai demandé quelles photos de Morrissey les inspiraient et nous avons recréé les images. Voici leurs portraits.
