Split Screen Reality © 2015 Chantal-Hélène Wagner
This picture was taken last year in the Parisian métro. There is a man on the left, underneath the leather jacket, holding his head in between his knees, looking literally like a shell of the man he once was...
Then, a few stops later, a father and son came to sit there, on the other side of the seat, without noticing him.
I was suddenly struck by the contrast they projected which was emphasized by the fact that both men were virtually wearing the same type and even color of leather jacket, yet signalling at the same time completely different life trajectories.
