Jacky Ido

I first met French actor, poet and film maker Jacky Ido in 2004 during the filming of "The White Massai" (Die Weisse Massai). He portrayed a Massai, I shot the stills. We have been in touch ever since, and, like a few weeks ago, he pops up in New York once in a while (above). I shot the image above with my pocket Canon G9, the ones below with a Fuji S2 Pro (well, this was 2004), some of my first serious digital images. The Fuji is replaced by two Nikons D200 and a D2X, The G9 is not leaving home without me...I started to love that camera.

I had taken pictures of Jacky in Paris (where he lives) two years ago, it is great to be able to shoot portraits of someone over a period of time, with both sides changing ...

    Dear Mr. Falke, I am writing to you because I had the opportunity to watch "The White Masai" last night and I must say that I was charmed. Wonderful movie! I would have a great deal of beautiful things to say about it! And I plan to do so, to Jacky Ido, if you are so kind to give me his address so that I can write to him directly.
    I read you met him four years ago and have been in touch ever since, that's why I dare asking this from you.
    I am looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible.
    All the best,
