'Where does one draw the fine line between commercial work and more personal fine art work? It's a legitimate question to ask in relation to many, if not most, photographers. In the case of François Gillet, however, such questions are superfluous, so successfully has he blurred any notional fine line between the two categories. For some decades now he has been surreptitiously insinuating the same sublime purity of vision that he brings to his personal work into the usually prosaic commercial world of advertising".
