I submitted "Bencong (http://showstudio.com/project/fashion_film_award/alex_franck_bencong) to the Fashion Film Award at SHOWstudio UK not to win it as it was never conceived as a Fashion Film let alone to enter a competition but as an idea, an exploration. I love Nick Knight and his visual creativity, so I submitted the piece and it sits happily on their website. Very cool.
I have an Instagram account: AlexFranckPhoto
