It was during one of my Paris escapades that I discovered Sophie Calle, there was a retrospective of her work at the Pompidou Centre and I spent hours in there looking at everything very attentively.
Sophie Calle explores themes that are very personal including obsession and the meaning of privacy. I think she also has a true feel for the wonders of everyday life. By its nature, her work is playful but also genuinely unsettling.
