(Abandoned Modernity)

"- Cher Monsieur, je voudrais un plein pour aller à Saint-Raphaël.
- Cela vous fera trente francs cinquante, Monsieur. "



Archéologie future d'un age d'or de la route, ce travail d'Eric Tabuchi reprend 40 ans après l'imagerie de Ed Ruscha (Twenty Six Gasoline Stations - dernière planche). Seulement le temps a passé et le road movie ne fait plus rage. L'image du rêve américain toucherait-il à sa fin dans la vieille Europe (L'ensemble des images étant prises en France)?

My apologies for commenting in English on a blog in French.

I am a big fan of your blog.
When I saw this post about abandoned gas stations, it excited me because I am interested in similar ideas.

My work is not as good as that of Mr. Tabuchi. But if you like, visit my gallery that has modern ruins from the American highway system. My main interest is in billboards.

Thanks Duane. All my apologies, I saw your comment 20 days later. Don't worry about commenting in english, we are thinking about switching to something a bit more international.
