I'm not one to elaborate on how or why I choose my work's titles… but today, an uncanny connection occurred between my photograph and it's caption that I felt like sharing…
When I was contemplating a title for this number, I wanted something evocative to George Orwell's "Big Brother is watching you" (from his dystopian novel, Nineteen Eight Four)… so with that, I re-formulated it to "Fantômas is Watching You…"
Then, as I was preparing the photograph for FB's share-image, I cropped part of it down and noticed on the background's door of this bar, I realised the establishment itself is called "Fantômas". Such irony.
I'll note too that we're also selling a Fantômas Czech poster (from 1980) for the film, "Fantômas contre Scotland Yard" (Fantomas Versus Scotland Yard - 1967) for $25 here.
Fantômas himself played by Jean Marais in.. Fantômas (France, 1964)
