Jean-Michel had this pretentious look he would give people. Michael Holman and I called it The Stare. Jean-Michel was a man of incredible talent and genius, and to deal with mundane everyday things was just not in his program. He was oblivious to many simple tasks that ordinary people do almost unconsciously. If you asked him a simple question like "What's the weather going to be like today? he would idly stare into your eyes with this intense, almost expressionless look on his face. Caught in deep concentration, Jean-Michel would stare at you and, without speaking, let you know how meaninglessalmost foolishyour question was to him. In this photograph, my camera captured "The Stare."
