Images from "The Fireman" Series.
I was spending a few days in Paris and on my first day came up from the Metro straight in to this demonstration. Very loud with whistles and horns being blown, shouting and singing and flares being let off in the crowd! The air was thick with smoke from the flares as well as the many fires that had been lit.
At one end of the barricades were the Riot police and at the other end...the cleaning up crews! very organised!!I was a little nervous as the French have a law that means you are meant to ask permission before you take anyone's photograph!!!! Oh well...if you don't take chance, you may never get those fantastic images we all hope for. I managed to stay around for 3 hours or so ...then...l saw a rather large French policeman working his way through the crowd towards me...shouting..in French! So l decided it was a good time move...rapidly! Enjoyed the day though.

"The Theatrical Shoe Project"...Lost and Found.( I am going to post this article every days or so!)
This is the shoe l found on Tuesday evening (22nd March 2006) near to Putney East Tube Station,London. I have decided to turn it into a "Project". It is such a dramatic and theatrical shoe l have decided to look for the owner! I am going to turn this image into a poster and paste them all over London..a modern day "Cinderella".
When l found the shoe, it had just stopped raining for the first time in many hours and the shoe was soaking wet. Why was it abandoned, where is it's pair, how did the owner walk home in one shoe..that high? so many questions! Do you know who this shoe belongs to? It is a size 6 (English sizing).
If you see the poster OR you know the owner OR you just want to find out information on this project..send me a comment!
