“The marvels of daily life are exciting: no movie director can arrange the unexpected that you find in the street” (Robert Doisneau)
Working as event photographer in Copenhagen I have had the pleasure of seeing parts of the city I had never been before. Among these, a former industrial site in the harbour, Refshaleøen.
I was taking photos of a private reception at a beach bar called Halvandet.
It was sunny and warm, and I was drinking a glass of iced water. Then I saw this scene and dropped my glass to take a picture of it: one of the waiters setting the table on the dock.
In a fraction of a second all the photos of Robert Doisneau were played in my mind, and I felt like being in France in the 30s.
But then I looked at the broken glass at my feet.
