Hopping around Europe.
"Amongst these many moments captured in Europe, the portraits displayed in this collection of the middle-aged man sitting outside, are of known journalist, Jacques Bergier. At the time, I had no idea who this man was, but as I was walking around a market in Paris, I spotted him. He had such a unique, strong, profound and interesting face that I could tell upon first glance that he had many stories. After he granted me permission to take his photo, we engaged in ongoing and intriguing conversation that was splattered with moments of the, sometimes, inevitable language barrier. However, I have learned from my travels, when people have a connection, the language barrier means very little. About a year later, I was contacted by a publication in Paris, France asking me permission to use these photos to honor Jacques, who had just passed away. Of course, I responded, 'oui et merci'". - Ashley K. Barnes
