Woodstock 69! It is by evoking the bands of today where a handful of young people, joyfully mix to "have fun" by playing the hammer or the screwdriver or illuminate their parties of fireworks, that we evoked, Marie-Charlotte and me, yesterday evening, our 69, I dare to say it, without it being useful to punctuate by the subject by a smiley winking of the eye in Woodstock, where a small party dedicated to music that was supposed to gather fifty thousand people gathered four hundred thousand of them without any of them feeling the need to come with tools, except for a few owners of VW mini-buses with psychedelic colors and the most tired mechanics. Indeed, some of them had not forgotten to take cigarette paper and a lighter and those who had no more Camels, Lucky Strike or Marlboro took their revenge on the lawn.

Woodstock where, if ladies and young ladies had had the idea of complaining, after having abused them without restraint, about the moments when one should forget everything by spreading one's toes and calling one's mother, lulled by the voices of Jane Birkin and Gainsbourg who celebrated in a song the eroticism of the year; it would have been necessary to mobilize the sheriffs of the province, the FBI, the CIA and perhaps even the army so that all the complaints could be recorded. And yesterday, Marie-Charlotte, my Hippie, hippie pip, hurray!

As they used to say at Dior in 2018 and on TV in '69 to describe Woodstock, told me that last Saturday, after the curfew had sounded, she found herself as in the days of the party with the last, empty pack of Marlboros in her carpeted apartment in Le Chesnay, and that she was craving a smoke. Later that night, she dreamed of a Chinese terracotta man leaving the ranks of his army and going out into the streets of Xi'an to walk a shell he was holding on a leash, while she, lightly dressed, equipped with a spaghetti gauge, sorted by size the attributes of her friends with whom, in the month of May in '68, she was clearing the cobblestones of the Boulevard Saint Michel in search of a beach that turned out not to be there.

And, as a soundtrack to her dream, Woodstock was part of the party, on her Saturday night, with Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Joan Baez, Janis Joplin, Joe Cocker and many others... to enliven it. This picture is for you Marie-Charlotte! You are always so ravishing my Marie-Charlotte and I like with you to relive this year. But we are not 20 anymore, so buy cigarettes... in packs and keep a couple of ten-pack cartons in reserve! Even if it will upset our apprentice fireworkers in their cities!

Member of the French Artists Association / Born in the Alps, Jean Turco spent his teenage years in Chamonix, at the foot of Mont Blanc and the highest peaks in Europe. He studied photography and art history, graduated and became passionately involved in high mountain photography. At the age of twenty, he abandons this subject, which is more than perfectly dealt with by the Tairraz family, and leaves Chamonix for Paris where, within the "Société Française de Photographie", refusing the craft of industrial photography, he turns to an exclusively creative photography which he exhibits successfully and sells in galleries. At the same time, he is professionally engaged in another of his passions which will allow him to travel far from France with, in his luggage, his inseparable Leica and Hasselblad. He then photographed countless landscapes in Europe, in the United States, in the Emirates and Sultanates of the Gulf, in Russia as well as in China and, born in the course of his encounters in India and Pakistan, he developed his concept of portraiture in order to share it better. Mainly intended for galleries and exhibitions (he has made more than one hundred and fifty of them in Europe, Russia, the United States, China, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, etc. in the last few years), his photography, in silver using CamboWide or Sinar 8 x 10 inch technical chambers as well as digital photography of all formats, allows him to illustrate and share his idealized vision of the world where he lives intensely. The nude, portrait and still life are the subjects he favours and he directs on these themes many Master-Class in Paris, Venice, Beijing and in the countries where he is invited to exhibit. Apart from his personal works, his lectures and television or radio interventions, his courses in photography schools and the writing of articles and books on lighting, Jean Turco works mainly on commissions from private individuals or advertising agencies. His photographs, present in the collections of several museums, Lenin in Ulyanovsk in Russia, National of the Republic of Kazakhstan in Astana, Nicéphore-Niépce in Chalon-sur-Saône etc. as well as in many private collections have been honoured many times with prizes and medals. In particular, he was awarded the bronze, silver, gold and honorary medals, as well as the Niepce prize, at the "Salon" - the historic and prestigious exhibition of the "Société des Artistes Français" - at the Grand Palais in Paris. He has published Pearson: Nude Photography (2010) The Art of Lighting (2012) Nude (2012) Nude (2012) Portrait (2012) Still Life (2012) A Guide to Posing (2014), Punto Marte MV: Nude (2013), Dunod: 100 Photographic Lighting Plans (2018), China Photographic Publishing House: A Chinese version of The Art of Lighting (2018).
