IT WAS the chance of a lifetime for any woman - to be photographed by a smooth-talking French photographer, albeit one who has made his name photographing nude and semi-nude women. Legislative Councillor Miss Christine Loh Kung-wai accepted an invitation to spend an hour floating around Victoria Harbour with Jacques Bourboulon while his camera chattered and snapped non-stop. All the time he was murmuring endearments like, ''I look for the inner beauty in women; to bring out their character, personality and femininity'', and ''taking pictures is like going to a long concert to hear one piece of music that touches the heart and makes the adrenalin run through the body''. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but P.S. believes Bourboulon's offerings are not what you would expect from someone billed as an award-winning photographer who charges US$3,000 (HK$23,200) for a 90-minute workshop. The main picture, taken at the Cultural Centre (above), is the best one drawn from the scores he took. It is no better, or worse, than the thousands taken by tourists. When Bourboulon saw his shots of Miss Loh he said he worked better on the second day of an assignment. Although he rejected almost two-thirds of the pictures that were out of focus or too windswept, he said he was broadly happy with the results. Miss Loh said during the shoot she was looking forward to passing on the results to her mother: we hope she still feels the same way.
