“From The Rooftops” by Nicolas LeForestier

This Parisian editorial from Nicolas LeForestier embodies the swift shift of seasons and subsequent renewal we feel as the rain cleanses concrete streets and bright flowers bloom in scenes of gray. Jessica Lebleis is locked in a state of sensuality atop a Paris rooftop, crimson silk draped against ivory bones, smoke exhaling between flower petal lips. A city that is a vessel of creative energy is captured effortlessly through LeForestier’s eyes. The iconic Gainsbourg home acts as Lebleis’ safe-haven, a space where she can lounge beneath spots of sunshine. The romance of Paris is undeniable – their rooftops are regarded as a symbol of European glamour, causing many to demand Parisian rooftops to be recognized as a Unesco world heritage site.

Photographed adjacent to the Musee D’Orsay on the Left Bank, the creative process of this editorial was a whirlwind of intoxicating energy.
