An old project - from my time in Germany. I visited the city of Salzburg, in Austria. At the time, I had been making a number of portraits. Suddenly, I was in a city where I knew no-one. I saw these shapes painted in the walk-ways to indicate that people could walk on this side of a bike-path. With a piece of chalk I went around the city naming the characters. The names are inspired from fiction, myths, childhood memories, animals, political events, or historical triggers.
