Photographer's Note

Paris, Norvins street in Montmartre.
On a side of the street emerges the little Marcel Aymé square, in the name of the writer who lived next to here and buried in the little cemetery of St-Vincent close to this place.
This sculpture, made by the french actor Jean Marais is an homage to the author and its short story, "Le passe-muraille" (I would translate by "the man who goes through the wall" but not sure), edited in 1943.
The hero of the story, Mr Dutilleul, is a little employee of a ministry and he uses his talent to get his revenge of an humiliation and to make some larceny.
Here, he seems to call this group of tourists who goes away.
