"In this zine, the Paris based (born in Haiti) photographer Henry Roy portrays a day of his life. FEB.17,2009 describes an imaginary day inspired by his environment, in a dreamy and cinematic perception of reality. Between reality and fiction, everyday life and 'mise en scene', his work mixes family and street pictures with portraits of, among others, the French filmmaker Claire Denis or the writer, musician and art critic Jeff Rian with his daughter Emma. Henry also asked the musician Jimmy Tomenou to play his own part for this story."
