This week The New Yorker  posted a fascinating article about Isabelle Mège, a medical secretary living in Paris who approaches photographers she admires and asks to be their subject. She tells them that she would like to see herself through their eyes. Over the years, she has acquired a great number of shots that she has arranged into a collection of her own. Anna Heyward, writing for The New Yorker,  calls Mège “an artist whose medium is other artists.” I was captivated by the uniqueness of her situation and by the dynamics she shares with the photographers with whom she works. The complete article can be found here, along with a selection of photographs.
