The Train Story

“You want something that is out of reach. You want to know what Paris looked like in the 1950’s. This is how I experience it now: I am sitting in the last carriage of the train and looking at the landscape gliding past outside. I always remain the outsider. I always see the past disappearing. But I want to be able to capture it. It gives you the feeling of calmness. If I have left something behind it makes me very restless. Maybe because I have such a bad memory myself,” Stephan Vanfleteren.
