Delahaye, Luc - L'autre New in plastic!
This text contains 100 photographs taken of passengers on the Paris metro between 1995 and 1997. The photographer says he stole these portraits because under French law everyone is the owner of his or her image. However, he also says that our image is nothing more than a worthless alias of ourselves and it is everywhere without us knowing it. Accompanied by a text from cultural theorist Jean Baudrillard, this book is an exploration of the relationship between the photographer and his subject, and an investigation into the meaning of the human image.
