Who are we ?

- “Alain, you should write a book in which you can recount all your life sto­ries!”
— “Thanks, Fred. I’m just an artist, not a writer …”

HHow many peo­ple have been asked that same ques­tion? And how many of them have found biog­ra­phers and his­to­ri­ans along the way? Prob­a­bly not many. Well, we are nei­ther writ­ers nor his­to­ri­ans but a group of friends who have got together to cre­ate a site and bring to life, if not every sin­gle story we can recall about Alain Godon, then at least the events, the works and the press arti­cles. Events and exhi­bi­tions at which some of us were present, works with which most of us are famil­iar, press arti­cles and tes­ti­mo­ni­als which are by his friends etc, all of these have been brought together in this site thanks not only to the tremen­dous work by Jane Tay­lor, with whom Alain Godon works in Lon­don, but thanks also to his long-​standing friends in Le Tou­quet: George-​Félix Cohen, pho­tog­ra­pher and orig­i­na­tor of many of Alain’s por­traits, Olivier Dehaf­freingue, friend and fan from the very out­set, sim­i­larly Aurélie Blet and the gallery owner Emmanuel Milani, who both spe­cialises in Alain Godon’s works and who is respon­si­ble for this web­site and its update.
