After the colourful experience of Idols, Gilles will take the opposite direction : Portraits (1981) in black and white. Here again, the experience of coming to Gilles’ peculiar studio is an important part of preparation : when, just by pushing a door in the center of Soho, you find yourself in a place having 7 meters of height between floor and ceiling, three intermediate floors, no windows showing anything of the outside world, and are surrounded by giant photographs, you have the feeling of entering a kind of parallel universe where none of your currents landmarks (daylight, sky, scales, familiar objects…) is there to help you(4). That is precisely what Larrain is looking for.
