By Laure Porché
For the last installment of my French Art series, let me talk to you about a friend of mine. I had the chance to work with several photographers over the last few years: never have one captured so well the images I had in mind that my friend, Gilles Alonso. He's got an extraordinary eye for location, and his portraits of women always have a special feel to them, reflecting the person he's photographing. Find some of my favorite pictures of his below (click on the images to view them bigger). For more, visit his website.
