“She was my first big love. I don’t want to be targeted by photographers, it’s voyeurism. I went to meditate on his grave a few days later, to be alone with him, without anyone. On the other hand, I watched over him at his house. I wrote him a letter, which I have always read on television ever since. “, he said.
Motivated, he went on to say:
“I took a picture of his dead body in his bed, which I kept in my wallet: Romy seems to be fast asleep, he’s beautiful. I always look at it…”
