In the 2004 calendar, the espresso cup goes into orbit and Le Gouès, the photographer chosen for this edition, recreates a world made of coffee and sugar, loosely inspired by the pop and sci-fi imagery of the ‘60s and ‘70s. The intergalactic journey leads us to a physical and mental space on the edge of fantasy. Thierry Le Gouès is known mainly as a fashion photographer and author of renowned advertising campaigns. He is distinguished by two works of fine art: Soul, inspired by Black Africa, in which female nudes are sculptures of ebony and light, and Popular, which gives its viewers a new vision of Cuba.
