It is a heavy thing to use the name of Brassaï's famous book for a black and white picture of Paris taken at night… I know. But It doesn't look like an old picture of the Hungarian master, only because of the painted graphics and the white stone blocks meant to channel the traffic. Have we become so stupid in 80 years that we have lost the discipline to watch what is going on in the street and need to be directed by signs and constructions destroying the look of the city ? But this image is weird for another reason : size matters. The smaller it is seen, the more graphic it looks and this is not what I wanted when I took it. Because these strong lines seem to direct the eye nowhere. Probably the opposite effect of what the traffic planners had in mind !
