the many ways in which i've been inspired by gilles berquet are beyond obvious. his dark, theatrical, dreamworld lighting struck a chord with me from the moment i saw it. as someone with no background in studio lighting techniques, it took me a long time (longer than it should have in the internet age) to unravel what he was up to. and of course, his subject matter…wow. initially, i admit, it was disturbing and kinda freaked me out (yeah, i know, right?). but ultimately liberating.
