Rue du Chateau d'Eau is one of those multi-ethnic streets that undergo a metamorphosis depending on the time of day. As witnessed in the series, Africa is very present. This photograph focusses on this person's seeming comfort and total indiference to the surroundings, as passersby cross this major boulevard to access the metro station on the other side. Evidently, there is a story, perhaps signified by the yellow worker's helmet, yet the entire scene troubles because of the powerful presence of this individual.
