Photographic Stories is a dialogue between an image and a text.
An image, created in a journalistic context, comes into the hands of a writer who, without having more information than the image itself, prepares a text. A text that highlights the poetics of the image.

Mrs. V. said that she would buy the flowers herself.1 Then she remembered that she would probably not find them anywhere today. "Lovely!" she thought. It would take her all day. Having eaten dinner, and while P. and R. were arguing in the kitchen, Mrs. V. took the opportunity to go and read in the drawing-room; a perfect opportunity to escape from a table vehemently clouded by tobacco smoke. In the afternoon, she would go up the street all by herself towards the square. She would not take the umbrella, because that autumn day was warm and rather sunny.

As soon as the clock rang seven, Mrs. V. put on her lipstick, picked up her lightweight coat, bag, and keys, and left the house. The unusual explosion of people in the street disturbed her a little. She smiled. Upon reaching the square, there was barely a gap, so she stood waiting at one end under a vault. Bless the black horse! 2 shouted the young man by her side, waving a flag.

When she got home — so hard weaving among so many people! —Mrs. V. lay down on the sofa. P. and R. had not yet arrived. The young man's words resonated inside her. She remembered the words clearly: Bless the black horse! She knew that the verse was not like that, and that the poet's blessing was, on the contrary, for the white horse. She smiled, overwhelmed with extraordinary excitement. "Yes, today is a galloping black horse day." -she thought.
