“J’etais trop feignant pour etre un autre que moi – même”
“I was too lazy to be anyone else than myself”
Boris Bergman Boris is a song writer, a writer, an actor, movie director, and a script writer
Born in UK from Jewish Russian parents, he moved to Paris at 14.
Boris displays the sharp witty humour of the survivors. Spending an afternoon with him is always a delight. I met Boris at the Brasserie Bofinger, in Paris, some years ago. He was having dinner at the table next to ours. We started a impromptu conversation and ended sharing a joint and lot sof laughter.
Today I went to visit him at his apartment perched high on the 6th floor of the Buttes Montmartre. My intention was to give him book from a Russian photographer I bought form him last time I was in Paris, a year ago, but never had the time to give him. So here I am with my one year old gift climbing the 6 floors – the lift was of course out of service -with my Canon camera on my shoulder.
His house is like his life: full. He has a huge collection of 35 mm movies and of course a projector, walls of music, books piled up everywhere and an amazing collection of caps and hats.
Boris has an immense culture, a big heart and so many stories to share. A man anyone would be proud to have as a friend.
A conversation with him is sheer pleasure.
So here my Boris and his living working studio
