Charlotte Gainsbourg in Paris and me

I caught Charlotte Gainsbourg in the Marais one afternoon. Charlotte's the celebrated actress, wife of Yves Attal the actor and director, and the daughter of film/music royalty Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg...
Yes, here she is without makeup and very sweet to allow me to photograph her in a courtyard of rue Birague in the Marais.
I'm behind the camera and took the photo. Amazingly my hands were steady enough and it didn't blur.
Charlotte's trying to turn her father, Serge's, place at 5 bis Rue de Verneuil into a museum, it's all in the Vanity Fair issue Nov 2007. Serge died in 1991 and his small house is as he left it, like a time capsule...

Enjoy et merci Charlotte,
