Quotes from François Nars, NARS Founder & Creative Director:
“I love Tilda’s bold style and really admire her work. As an actress, she brings such strong personality to the camera. And as a woman, she lives the experience of transformation and expression. She was the perfect choice for NARS.”
“She [Tilda] lives her roles, in many ways. And you can see it in her face, in her skin. You feel like she has this extraordinary experience in life by creating her own rules. She is always playing herself.”
Quote from Tilda Swinton:
“I met François only recently when he asked to photograph me for his book, having long been an admirer of his from afar for many years. I liked him immensely and immediately and we were eager, from that first session, to do more things together. I could not be more proud to call him my colleague. Now I understand why his work is so fresh and original, because he is so bright and has such a sweet heart.”
