Street Fisher, archiviste de rue.

Dear readers and friends, It's time to refresh this blog with a bunch of stuff from the Street !

Unfortunately or fortunately, I have other skills that do not require many words to illustrate them. As "Street Archivist", I'll show you a little about what happens in the public arena in terms of photography, art, sport, architecture and vandalism. Here's the heart of a true "Street Fisher". Let's go surfing ! ^_^ {postscript: I'll let the old articles up for a while, but one day...… Lire la suite Street Fisher, archiviste de rue.
