9th district from Blanche to Pigalle used to be a playground for the wise guys. Wandering here and there you might ask yourself which reality hide behind those typical characters, I have been more than once invited to vaguely legal playrooms while I was sipping a beer around a pool table.
Herring is not a fish in french, it's a way of living, and when we say it smells like fish, you won't have around anyone with a rod or a net, but rather some guys making money with them ladies, see...
9th is a district for men, with or without the fish smell.
"Seventy five - Double O - Nine
Some nervous guy, with too sensitive fingertips like Clint Eastwood
Some night in the 9th, it can easily become like the forest of Sherwood"

Contratulations and thank you
Hope you are fine
What an interesting serie !!! Never thought of making such a thing... Not used to make "series", although you often shoot in the same way like you say in your intro. But this is really an impressive work. I like the strong POV, the accent on the man, innocent sitting there with his cigarette - Keith Richard alike ... It's a pity Paris has only 20 districts !!!!
i didn't know that you made a publicity for the Olympics with Bob dylan ;-)
i love the idea of this compo focused and this very special profil.
fine BW tones with a very pleasant grain.
The best of your sery in my opinion so far.
Ooooh ooo the pipe perspective has reached Holik, be careful here man! This is wedding-photography humor! dangerous territory for a careful street photographer like you :o)
Lucky enough you found this Dylan like character with a sigar ( or is it a finger?) on the other end of the pipe, wich makes this photo much more interesting. But we have the idea of the 9th here, wich was the initial point here ofcourse...
i realy like this project and make me want take some picture in Paris
waiting for the next.
