Below street level, through a brilliant white portal opening on to La Seine, two figures emerge from the underworld labyrinth that is the Paris Metro. They could turn left and climb the stairs to join the throng plying the city’s neon boulevards, or they could turn right, and descend into the slanting shadows that blanket the chiselled stone walls of the Left Bank.
They pause to regard each other, embrace and then separate. The man turns right, the woman left, each in search of different needs.
