A man ahead of his (DS) time
Let me instroduce you to André Hannorat, a French politician that, I 'm sure, nobody in France remembers! I just like this sculpture - that I shot at the Cité Universitaire, where he lived the last years of his life. And though this man should be remembered for one thing that we still experience nowadays: the daylight saving time. In fact to be perfectly honest, he apparently "borrowed" the idea from Benjamin Franklin and had a bill passed at the French Parliament in as early as 1917.
