I can’t remember when I first saw ‘Les Horloges’, the statue by Arman that stands in front of St Lazare train station in Paris. I do know that I’ve been fascinated by it from the start, and have tried to shoot it in interesting ways repeatedly. The pigeon couple and the wide-angle shot make it more interesting, don’t they?

Throughout my canal excursion I found the houses fascinating, especially the ones on stilts. It’s hard to imagine that this is in the heart of a 6 million inhabitant metropolis. Not to mention the birds: they live there too!
Arman’s statue « L’Heure pour Tous », just outside Saint-Lazare train station in Paris is a constant subject of fascination to me. I have tried to capture it on photo many times, and this interpretation is the most interesting so far. I like how the pigeons nest there, oblivious to the fact that they live within art.
