Bravo! Janol Apin is a Parisian photographer who wonders around Parisian metro stations and uses them as an inspiration behind his project of creating visual puns and anecdotal scenes that relate to their respected station name. For example the Champ de Mars stop has an astronaut donning his cumbersome suit, easily drawing a link between the red planet and the moon man. Or the Argentine station has two couples dancing the Argentine Tango. So even though the names are all in French the images transcend the language barriers with the creative word-play and fun costumes.

My favourites are the Argentine, Champ de Mars, Dupleix, Opéra and Rome. Yours?

P.S: Plus, the stunning vintage Paris and a few stolen French smooches:)
