Photographer's Note

Le guerrier portait ses amulettes autour du cou pour se sentir invicible.
Il tenait la main une arbalette et des flches transpercer le coeur.
Il montait la garde l'entre du village.
Il tait le soldat redout.
Le gardien du temple.
Celui que l'on respecte et que l'on glorifie.
Mais comme c'tait un enfant,
je l'ai fait rire avec trois mots bien placs.

****

The warrior carried his amulets around the neck to feel invicible.
He held with the hand a arbalette and arrows to transpierce the heart.
He was the guard at the entry of the village.
He was the dreaded soldier.
The guard of the temple.
That which one respects and who one glorifie.
But as he was a child,
I made him laugh with three words placed well.
