Stéphane Gizard


« I met Brady Rider in Paris one afternoon in May 2023.
He was sitting on a bench. He held a book in his hands; his arms were muscular.
He looked up and gave me a smile. Me stammering…
“Hey! How’s it going ? what are you reading ? » he replied (in a charming American accent) “It’s by Aldous Huxley”
Really ! Meetings are never due to chance.

We started a conversation full of small talk and then I asked him to pose for me. We saw each other several times until July.

Brady was born twenty-four years ago in South Carolina.
He is a painter. He now lives in Los Angeles.
