Description:
Talent Caché is French for "hidden talent", I have always been fascinated with French artist in everyway. Believe it or not this photo was taken in the back of a flea market, separated from the rest. This artist never gave me his name or his inspiration, but he loved talking about his work. We spent about 30 minutes speaking about our similar interest concerning art and upcoming artist. He said something that stuck with me; he wanted to be noticed but never strived to be famous. When I asked him what he meant he said, "I want to be hidden, I don't want just anyone looking at my work through prints. I want people to have to look, and look hard for my work. If you wouldn't have come back here, if you kept going to same way everyone else had, you wouldn't be here looking at my work. You decided to go the other way, go be different and to find the hidden talent."
