CRAFT BARTENDING IS MY EXPERTISE. I DEDICATED THE LAST TWENTY YEARS TO IT. PHOTOGRAPHY IS MY OTHER MAJOR MEANS OF PERSONAL EXPRESSION. THESE TWO PASSIONS EACH NOURISH ONE AND ONE MY CREATIVE PROCESS.
— Julien Escot

Even if he's recognized for his work in the bar industry, it's another passion, more intimate, a less public one, which Julien recently decided to reveal.

Julien discovered a passion for photography when he worked at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden Roc in the late 1990's. There he met major photographers who fascinated him and motivated him to take the plunge.

Always carrying his signature Leica lens, Julien travels as much for his professionals activities as for more personal photo projects.

With Aperture, Julien finally realized a dream: to design a showcase, both for his photography series and for his cocktail creations.
