Notre Dame Cathedral – June 26 1971

10:40 AM. The wirewalker doesn’t need to be saved, and the firemen are powerless to convince him otherwise. The police decide to evacuate the tourists, and as I managed to be the first one there, I manage to be the last one to leave. Just before I head down the staircase, I look back and see Philippe’s face ironically floating in the void between the towers. Surrounded by policemen, we can only speak with our eyes. One last photo, one last glance between partners in artistic crime. The mission is accomplished, as well as the first photo documentation crowning our years of friendship and complicity.

Complicity
