Street posters

This summer, Paris was in the grip of a sex wave of remarkable intensity. The Minister for Womem's Rights, Nicole Pery, even comissioned a report on "L'image des femmes dans la publicite" which she published in July 2001, and the english paper The Guardian raised an eyebrow. I took most of these pictures in the morning after the Savignac opening, unaware of what was to going to happen a few hours later.

Shortly afterwards, the world had other worries, the Belle Epoque was over, and the mood had changed.

Strange writings on the walls:
