Triptychs of Strangers #3: The Cyclist, Paris

Near Gare du Nord: he was on his way to an appointment. You cannot miss that he was riding a bike. I had to stop him and asked him if he would like to participate in this let's call it project.

 

"I like your style and you are obviously on a bike. Give me a moment and I'll explain you why I had to stop you"

 

I showed him my first triptych shot and a few other strangers on my mobile/pen and then I explained everything else.

 

About this stranger

It didn't take much time and he agreed - he seems to be really open and interested in general. His name is Pierre - he is 30 years old and is actually from Bordeaux but lives in Paris. He is a lawyer and works in an administration of public health. His relationship status is pretty clear - straight and engaged to be married. If he is not riding public bikes, he might be eating Côte de boeuf ("my favorite meal") or reading Kapitan Michalis or Alexis Sorbas for the hundredths time coz Nikos Kazantzakis is his favorite writer.

 

His eyes grew immensely while talking about Bob Dylan - this song really makes him think

Bob Dylan - Standing in the Doorway
