Simon Procter new portraits of Lagerfeld, Versace, Elbaz, Dolce& Gabbana with the artist Berndnault Smilde

Summer 2013, Milan.
The production company has found an old Palace in the centre of Milan, in which I will shoot the portrait of Donatella Versace.
We arrive early, there is not much time and when she arrive s with all her people  there will be even less.
We enter the Palace, they have emptied almost everything to make ready for a major renovation, bright squares stain the antique wallpaper where great pictures must have hung.
Ancient Bakelite electric sockets hang from walls.
It is so beautiful, room after room magnificent, huge 20 feet ceilings, gold mouldings and mirrors everywhere.

Summer 2013, Paris.
We wait in the Grand Palais for Karl Lagerfeld.
We have lit one of the great marble staircases for his portrait. 
All is ready. 
We wait.
Then there is a commotion and he appears behind us with his bodyguard?
He has been driven inside the Palais itself, his Rolls Royce now sits alone in the enormous space.
He smiles warmly and greets every single person.

Chanel Haute Couture, Grand Palais

Today I saw a forest built beneath the glass and iron palace.

A reconstruction of a specific place or  memory , the pine and sandy forests of Landes, I think. 
(Themselves artificial, planted by Napolean reclaiming beach and marsh.)

Everywhere hidden song bird sounds.
A manufactured blue mist hanging.
All this built just for a few hours.
there is no sense to such a project.

The effect was real, it was one of the most extraordinary things I have ever seen.
