*The Weight of Love*
Canon A2 + Ilford FP4+
This is a shot of something you will no longer be able to see : the padlocks attached to various pedestrian bridges in Pairs (here the Pont de l’Archevéché) have been removed. They were supposed to symbolise the love of the couples attaching them, but they ended up weighing down the bridges so much that they represented a safety concern. I hope that’s not symbolic of love in general. Anyway, for this photo I have done what I like to call a fauxpan, ie. resizing a standard 24×36 shot to the 24×65 XPAN format.
