Photographer's Note

Il tait assis dans cette position pendant au moins une heure : il ne mendiait pas, il ne buvait pas pendant ce temps. Qui est-il ? Un pauvre ? C'est probable. Un sans-abris ? Je ne sais pas. Ses chaussures indiquent la pauvret mais les sans-abris parisiens sont souvent mieux chausss pour faire face au froid et l'humidit. Ce jour-l, il ne faisait pas plus de 8 degrs; et il pleuvait souvent. Il y avait une telle dtresse dans son attitude que je ne l'ai pas abord. Je sais parler aux sans-abris mais quant cet homme, mon instinct ne m'a pas permis d'aller vers lui. Pourquoi nous sommes si loin les uns des autres ?

He had sat in this position during at least an hour: it did not beg, it did not drink during this time. Who is it? Poor? It is probable. A homeless? I do not know. His shoes indicate poverty but the Parisian homeless people are often fitted better to face the cold and with moisture. This day, it did not make more than 8 degrees; and it often rained. There was such a distress in his attitude that I did not approach him. I can speak to the homeless people very easly but as for this man, my instinct did not allow me of going towards him.
How fare...?
