“I walked up the tower, maybe one hour of walking. Some people ask me, “Did you ask the painter for permission?” I said, “My goodness, no. To talk with them was to risk slipping and falling down.” I’ve always been shy and I’ve always been trying to ignore the people I was photographing, so that they ignore me. I’m trying always to take a better picture than the one before but I was not sure of this one. I didn’t think after I shot the picture that I shot something interesting. I learned from Cartier-Bresson what’s called “geometry in photography.”  It’s not dependent on what you’d call a good photograph, but good geometry.” (Marc Riboud)

Paris, 20 November 1903: the ghostly form of an airship floats past an equally ghostly Eiffel Tower, before a very solid crowd of completely entranced spectators. It is Le Jaune, ‘The Yellow’, the first of the successful Lebaudy series of French semi-rigid airships.
