Artist's description:

This image was taken in Vieux-Lyon, the city's oldest district and designated a UNESCO world heritage site.
Final editing consists of tonal and colour adjustments.

I am fascinated by the ability of a piece of glass to record the beautiful surfaces and qualities that our own eyes often fail to register. The camera avoids subjectivity and distraction.

The proud name of the garage suggests delusions of grandeur and faded lettering is reminiscent of Pompeiian wall paintings. How can the recent past seem older than the remote scenes from the 60's displayed on a black and white television set..... prematurely aged by technological redundancy.
