The Man of the Crowd

The Man of the Crowd is a reflection on a short story by Edgar Allan Poe and a street occurrence that I photographed in Paris. The main part of the work is a series of 56 photographs, tracking a 21st century flâneur, followed by imagetexts based on linguistic analyses of Poe’s story. Each book is marked with a distinct word from Poe’s story, which limits the edition to the number of different words in the tale. Published November 2012.
