Michel Polnareff, rue Oberkampf

On Friday I made a trip to Paris especially to interview my new French pop hero, Évariste.  More on this later as I have a fairly long but very interesting interview to write up.

Anyway, whilst in Paris I could not resist going to take a look at the childhood home of one of my other French pop heroes – Michel Polnareff.  Here is a photograph of 24 rue Oberkampf:


Sorry it’s not more inspiring but it was incredibly cold and wet all day on Friday in Paris and this was the best I could do.  But just imagine the young Polnareff going home here in the late 50’s / early 60’s.  Aw!

Thanks to Dave for getting his camera out on such a wet day to help me out – I took a couple of shots with my Diana F+ but I’ll have to get those processed before I can share them here.

About tinynoggin

I love films (anything from exploitation stuff to stylish Eastern European cinema, but I'm not really into blockbusters and modern Hollywood), music (Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Michel Polnareff, Left Banke, Francoise Hardy, The Seeds, Love, The Zombies, etc) and books (Kurt Vonnegut, Julian Maclaren-Ross, Michel Houellebecq, Patrick Hamilton, Alan Sillitoe, and more). I take photographs with my Lomography Diana F plus or my Olympus Trip and like making stuff in my spare time.
