Blog #046 "Roi et Reine" / " King and Queen"

Published on 22/01/2021

Here is the love story behind the taking of this photo. I very rarely take specific orders and even more rarely do studio photos, but when I am offered a challenge and I have freedom to create and concept, then I accept.

Roi et Reine / King and Queen, is an order from a good client who wanted to give one of my photos as a wedding gift. But what subject to propose?

I first asked him to describe to me the happy newlyweds to become, and his first reaction was: "as soon as they have free time, they play chess" .... Tadam .... I said to my client: "I will get back to you with a proposal quickly.

I knew I had a little chess set somewhere in the children's toys. Yes, a sober game with plastic pawns, which is more ordinary. But the magic at work. Placed on the dining room table, with a simple little lamp, but the concept was to place the Queen's head on the King's shoulder.
