The icons   ザ アイコンズ

April 3, 2014

When you think of Paris, or even hear the word, there are probably certain images that come to mind.  Landmarks, more likely than not.  There are undoubtedly certain landmarks that are up for debate, but I’m sure that most will agree that the Eiffel tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame and the Louvre are instantly recognizable by much of the world.

パリ。その言葉を聞きながらなにが考えていますか。イッフェル塔でしょうか。ルーブル美術館ですか。世界中その史跡の意味はパリですね。

Having lived in Hong Kong for many years now, where even apartment blocks rise to 50 stories or more, it’s remarkable how flat many European cities are.  Paris is no exception to this.  As a result, it’s amazing how many views of the Eiffel tower there are, from all around the city.

香港の建物の高さはとても高いです。たとえば、僕のアパート建物は42階です。香港の一番高い建物は110階です。反面にヨーロッパの建物は高くないです。それでパリにたくさん所からイッフェル塔を見えます。

The challenge for me, I quickly discovered, was figuring out how to get something different out of one of the most photographed cities in the world.  Could I get a different perspective of Paris that others before me hadn’t?  Highly unlikely, though I tried not to let that stop me from giving it a go.

数十年まえから人々はパリで写真を写しています。沢山有名な写真家も素敵な写真を写しました。それでぼくが異色な写真を撮るかどうか分からなかった。ありえないと思ったのに最善の努力を行った。
