Όλοι αυτοί που εικονίζονται σε αυτές τις εικόνες έζησαν την έκσταση και τον γολγοθά της show-business, την εργασία και την οδύνη της επίδειξης… Τόσο φώς γύρω τους, όλη τη ζωή τους, που έχασαν τη σκιά τους…
Jean Baudrillard, στο Big Room του Guy Peellaert

Tous ceux qui figurent dans ces images ont vécu l’extase et le calvaire du show-bizz, le travail et la souffrance de l’exhibition…Tellement de lumière autour d’eux, toute leur vie, qu’ils en ont perdu leur ombre…
Jean Baudrillard, dans Big Room de Guy Peellaert

All those depicted in these images have experienced the ecstasy and debasement of show-business, the hardship and suffering of exposure… Overwhelmed by light their entire lives, they no longer have a shadow…
Jean Baudrillard, in Big room by Guy Peellaert
