336km is the distance between Paris and London. It is also the title for this book that represents much more than the locations where these images were captured. Rather, for me, 336km came to represent so many of those little life moments, inspiring moments that just happened to be connected in time and space.
Here, I saw a world slow to surrender its history while still undergoing breakneck change—a choreographed dance between the past and the future, ritual and routine, tradition and progress. Populated by a wide array of faces and cultures, 336km reveals, in just that short span, an increasingly global landscape in which every enterprise must rely on the universal visual language in order to convey its message.
"336 km" is therefore a 'limit state' between here and there, between the past and now. Despite being roughly the distance itself between the two European capitals, 336 km certainly does not mean a straight line between two points, but the tortuous journey contained between them.
At 336 km, blurred barriers of time and place dissolve our assumptions regarding the progress and change, challenging us to enjoy more intensely the moment when we are away and the urge to set it before you actually meet him.
