my willem dafoe interview, in the current issue of l'optimum

Yes it's in French and no I won't translate (for now), but suffice it to say, the man is every bit as inspiring to talk to as he is on stage and in celluloid... a true artist, a fighter and a thinker. Photos by the talented Satoshi Saikusa, styling by the lovely Yasmine Eslami, creative direction by Aldo Buscalferri, who reminds me so much of John Lurie, and a huge thank you to the one who made this happen for me: Alessandro Russo!
