A few years ago I received a bottle of Jean-Paul Gaultier cologne from my dear wife. It will last me many years, yet, but I had been meaning to photograph it just for fun. this afternoon was the day to shoot it. I was not in any way thinking about the fact that the Oscars are on tonight when i shot this. Ironic. The self indulgent industry that is in full support of SOPA and ACTA, celebrating their own "achievements". Sounds about right.
