‘’I’m a very family-oriented person, so I wanted to meet the families of some of my biggest music idols’’, Carine Roitfeld noted her excitement at seeing and photographing such high-profile musicians, adding. ‘’It was amazing to see that some of the industry’s most groundbreaking rock stars have a sense of tenderness with their loved ones – even if they are adults’’, Roitfeld said.
