Photographer's Note

Le vieux rverbre avait connu le bon temps des soviets.
Celui o on mettait des ampoules dans le ciel, parce que le gaz tait gratuit.
Celui o les villes devaient avoir l'air riche, parce qu'on voulait tre moderne.

Et puis,
la lumire s'est teinte, les illusions aussi.
Le gaz n'arrivait plus. Il n'y avait plus personne pour changer les ampoules.
A quoi bon. la ville aussi tait dserte.
Plus d'entreprise, plus de travail.

On tait devenu libre. Libre dans la nuit.

****

The old reverberator had known the good time of the Soviets.
That time when one put bulbs in the sky, because the gas was free.
That time when the cities had to get rich air, because one wanted to be modern.

And then, the light turned off, the illusions too. The gas didn't come anymore.
There was nobody any more to change the bulbs.
Why for ? the city also was deserted.
No more factories, no more work.

One had become free. Free in the night.
