Metro Man, photographed in 1996, Juxtaposing the movement and mood of the people, against advertising posters on the metro walls. This series is a unique insight into the daily ritual of Parisians traveling to and from work. Every image represents four seconds of time, hand held camera exposures, manipulating and montaging my subjects within the camera, as well as using subject movement, producing surreal images of the Paris metropolitan rush hour.
