Shadow Man

Digital displays are invading the planet, and Paris is not spared. For as long as one can remember, oversized posters have clung to the curves of the Parisian metro!

The scene of dexterous workers putting up posters mark the daily landscape of commuters in the City of Lights.

I have always been fascinated by the work of these men on their stepladders, a pot of glue and broom in hand, deftly removing air bubbles trapped under the sticky, crackling paper with a few decisive sweeps. The effect is magical , just the right amount of glus, nicely even, precisely matched edges.

With the advent of digital displays all over the planet, this subterranean scene is becoming rare, and will eventually disappear.
