: 16 A modern day Popeye, drunk as hell, sat on a bar in Arles, a place known to me as Van Gogh's inspirational refuge. I was there during a photography festival that happens every year.
July. Hot as hell. A small medieval city that still keeps the geography of its streets as a maze. A group of young italian photographers sat with me, and took pictures with the man. His loneliness seemed hidden by his apparent loose laughter. The uncomprehensible dizziness of his words made me doubt years of good french skills.
This picture I took captured the moment where he started showing off a suposed physical strenght, graphically held by his flexed muscles. But the double exposure reveals some unbalance or simply the journey from point A to point B in all its movement. There, he holds a light in the distance.
