Françoise Madeleine Hardy, born 17 January 1944, is a French singer, actress and astrologer. Hardy is an iconic figure in fashion, music and style. She is married to the singer and movie actor Jacques Dutronc.
Her early musical influences were the French chanson stars Charles Trenet and Cora Vaucaire as well as Anglophone singers Paul Anka, the Everly Brothers, Cliff Richard, Connie Francis and Marty Wilde whom she heard on the English language radio station, Radio Luxembourg. After a year at the Sorbonne she answered a newspaper advertisement looking for young singers. Hardy signed her first contract with the record label Vogue in November 1961. In April 1962, shortly after she left university, her first record "Oh Oh Chéri" appeared, written by Johnny Hallyday's writing duo. Her own flip side of the record, "Tous les garçons et les filles" became a success, riding the wave of Yé-yé music in France. It sold over a million copies, and was awarded a gold disc. The track peaked at #36 in the UK Singles Chart in 1964. She first appeared on television in 1962 during an interlude in a programme reporting the results of a presidential referendum.

Herman Selleslags photographed more than half a century of national and international events. His photographs are historical documents, mostly in black and white, sometimes in color. He works in almost all circumstanceswith the available light and therefore hardly ever used flash.
His clients included Belgian Magazine Humo, Vrij Nederland and the Volkskrant, but also Knack, Die Zeit and the Times turned to the images of the Antwerp photographer. Then there is the "free" work; photos that are not in order were made, but out of personal interest arose. Selleslags was not limited to one area of photography. He made to documentary and reportage photography, but also to portrait, sports and music photography. Among his best known work belongs: The Magical Mystery Tour film set shots where he was the only photographer allowed. He photographed numerous celebrities: Jean-Paul Sartre, John Lennon, Mick Jagger, Ike and Tina Turner, The Ramones, Frank Zappa, Lou Reed, Pink Floyd ... (and from the Low Countries: Eddy Merckx, Johan Cruijff , Rik Van Looy, Freddy Maertens, Bobbejaan Blades, Jan Decleir, Julien Schoenaerts, Hugo Claus, Panamarenko, Harry Mulisch, Gerard Reve, WF Hermans, Jeroen Brouwers ...)
