La criée du phare

Lighthouse, fish market, Paris
“Les Samouraïs des Mers” (formerly “La criée du phare”)
Rue Castagnary, 15e arrondissement
Paris, July 2014

“At 6 a.m. it’s already broad daylight. A lighthouse stands before me, reaching into a sky that announces a beautiful June day. But there are no crying seagulls, no ebb and flow of waves, only rather the sound of cars and trains. Where are we? Rue Castagnary in Paris’s 15th arrondissement, by the train tracks of the Montparnasse Station that serves western France. This lighthouse is nothing but an advertisement for a fish market. But I dream of going inside and opening a window so as to greet Bretons in their trains arriving in Paris.”

To the best of my knowledge, the place is now closed and rotting...
