On a hot summer day, a man is reading a book on the Seine river bank, Paris – 2006.
This is one of my early picture taken during a wander in the street of Paris. I used to walk endlessly the streets of Paris before leaving the French capital. I remembered stopping at this place. I found the lamppost on the foreground interesting because it gave a good dimension between the subject, the reader and my own position in the scene. I then waited for someone walking on the top right corner to create a more interesting composition. I thought that the walker will add more life to this everyday life scene.
