Once again it’s time for the annual flesh fest that is the French Rugby Calendar, aka Dieux Du Stade. Fred Goudon was the lucky photographer to shoot this, the 12th calendar for Stade Francais. I’m a loyal fan of the calendars. More often I buy the DVD’s of the making of but this year’s imagery looks a bit dull to me. It’s almost as if he’s admitted that the concepts were a bit weak so he decided to make some of them a yellow sepia colour, some blue, some black and white and it all looks a bit confused and jumbled. Maybe Dieux Du Stade is out of ideas? Granted, it would be very difficult to keep a project like this fresh but the last couple of years have been beautiful.
