“Get back into the saddle! The vast world waits for you!”
To the men strong enough to dare to be a father.
— “Marius: Hmm… So, who’s the father? The man who gave birth, or the one who pays for feeding-bottles?
César: Oh yes… Dogs too can give birth. The father, Marius, is the one… who loves!”
Marcel Pagnol,«Fanny» (1932).
Blue mood in Belleville.
I live in the quartier for more than 15 years. Artists, poor people, young people, well-to-do families, old people, a lot of children, adrift people, communities of different cultures and religions mix there. Some days, it’s really hard, even violent, mostly, it’s peaceful.
When I began to photograph streets, it was my purpose: to show Belleville, my Paris area (I’ve create a page gathering all my Belleville shots, on my Tumblr, BnW, colors, mobile photo & DSLR mixed). I return for a few days to my initial purpose.
