Photographer's Note

October 31, lunchtime at Downtown Ottawa. The civil servants are in a hurry to get their sandwiches or pickup fast food, in the still warming rays of the October sun. The security guard is sitting by the roadside, aimlessly looking around--as I do. And then Pierrot appears, with a real costume and powdered face, talking to her collegue animatedly... Seeing my joy, she turns around, looks straight at me with an expression her costume requires, hides her cigarette and stares at my camera, wistfully.

Sometimes I wonder about masks and costumes. Sometimes I wonder if this resembles more the face of some civil servants requested to perform repetitive tasks, constrained within the 3 square meters of their windowless cubicles...
