Palais de Tokyo. Paris. “Mère voici vos fils qui se sont tant battus.” Mother, here are your sons who have fought so much.” On the right bank of Paris, the Palais de Tokyo was the museum of modern art before Beaubourg-Pompidou. Still worth a stroll. The statue is by Bourdelle. The words are from a poem by Charles Péguy. The first version of the statue was set up in 1922, in commemoration of WWI. This one is the 4th copy, installed in 1948, in memory of fighters of the Free French Forces.

Colombo, Ceylon. (I know, they say Sri Lanka now. 😉 So confusing) C. 1952.
“Mais nous aurons toujours Paris”, But we wil always have Paris…
Tea plantation worker in Sri Lanka. c. 1952. I find those old photographs very moving. This young woman is now either gone or a very old lady, and yet her eyes will remain forever alike.
