I recently featured a few Jean Ferrero photos in an homage to France, and they had a quite favorable response as well as requests for more.  So today will be Ferrero Day with a special emphasis on models Christian Ferrand and Bud Lanter, favorites of my good friend Jean from Belgium.

  1. Is that really Ferrero today ?? He has changed so much in a few years time !

    1. The photo isn't dated, but a reputable source says it's him.

    2. Hello Jerry , seems my reply via email did not go through?
      Quite possible , he must be well into his 80s by now but what a dramatic change in maybe 5 years time ! Best regards . Jean .

    3. No email, Jean, but we have had connection problems locally this morning, so it might have disappeared. My research shows that Mr. Ferrero was alive and well as recently as 2015, having presented part of his personal collection for an exhibition.

  2. Yes I know Jerry , I have seen it while vacationing on the French Riviera . The rather posh museum is his own property and he is/was living in the house next door.
    His personal collection did (alas) not include any male nude and the subject was taboo ! The museum was still open in 2018 .

    1. You know, the article I found listed "art works" without ever mentioning photographs. I thought that was odd, and now I know why.
