About the book

For about two years I have lived with my wife Mariko Saito in the Villa Volkovitch. It is a huge house in a beautiful suburb of Paris, owned by Michel Volkovitch, a wise man, who inherited it from his grandfather who inherited it from. Michel and his wife Carole receive many guests. Some are relatives, some are friends, some are friends’ children. I noticed that most of them are immediately captivated by the very special atmosphere that prevails inside the Villa, a blend of melancholy and poetry, combining hospitality and a nostalgic aura of vanishing beauty. Three months ago Mariko and I decided to organize photo shootings with some of those people, transforming them into imaginary inhabitants of the Villa living their imaginary lives. In this little book you will find our favourite photographs from those shootings, as well as some still lives from inside the Villa. We wish to express our gratitude to Michel and Carole for everything they did (and still do) for us.
