Vincent has been named chairman of this year's edition of  Le Salon de la Photo held at the Parc des Expos Porte de Versailles from November 9-13, 2017. It is the French forum for photographers and photography enthusiasts. Over five days, the Salon de la Photo brings together all the key players in the world of photography: not only manufacturers and importers but also schools and professional associations, all eager to show their latest products and ideas.

World War II drama ALONE IN BERLIN continues to premiere around the world. Presently, Vincent is in Japan promoting it. Here are some new production photos. The first one shows Vincent with the film's music composer, Alexandre Desplat. The next two show X Filme producer Stefan Arndt.

Certainly, traveling has taken center stage so far this year. Vincent began 2017 with a photo trip to Russia, but at the end of January he was in the US attending the screening of "Alone in Berlin" at the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival. He stayed around Paris in February for his photography exhibition at MEP. In early March he was in Italy and then he was off to India. Earlier this month he was in NYC and then Spain, and now he's in Tokyo. Hope he has a frequent flyer card as he racks up these miles! Here's a selfie he took today.

Daughter Iman, who turns 18 next month, has been in the news of fashion and horses. The photos below are from a charity cocktail party on April 20th in Paris. Supermodel Naomi Campbell has teamed up with Italian brand Diesel for a collection dedicated to her Fashion for Relief charity - Child at Heart, concerned with the welfare of children globally. As usual, I have updated Iman's fashion pages with the latest photos.

In the April 22 edition of  Le Journal du Dimanche, Iman admits that if she were forced to choose between her two passions, it would be horses over fashion. Her contract with Next Worldwide in Paris and Storm Management in London allows her to finance her equestrian activities. She has been riding since she was four years old but along the way, she also participated in dance, basketball, swimming and figure skating and practiced violin, guitar and piano. Whew! In a couple months Iman will compete at the Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping.

Vincent is back to pursuing his passion for photography with a trip this month to India for more portraits. He visited Udaipur and participated in Holi, a Hindu spring celebration known as the "festival of colors". He looks like he's having a fun time.

His exhibition continues at Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris through April 9th.  In connection with this exhibition, a book signing was held on March 11th. "Les Parisiens" has been published by Artron Books and contains 28 portraits and is available exclusively from the MEP bookshop. Included is an interview between Jean-Luc Monterosso and Vincent.

On March 15th, CHACUN SA VIE opened in French theaters to mediocre reviews. The massive ensemble film was criticized for its abundance of characters with a story that lacked any intrigue. It was described as a cluster of "sketchy sketches" rather than a film but scenes with Johnny Hallyday were deemed hilarious. Vincent had a minor role and was not discussed.

Earlier this month Vincent and his wife were in Turin, Italy, attending the presentation of a book written by Marisa Bruni Tedeschi entitled "Mes chères filles, je vais vous raconter". Her daughters are Carla and Marie. These photos are very dark and appear to be taken outside through a window.
