Assignment by the RATP group (Operator of Parisian Transports) , 2002


The book “Ateliers” presents the industrial network of the RATP under a particular light.
Within this environment, the photographers emphasize the daily work of the men and women who operate the public transport system in Ile-de-France. These photographs enable ordinary citizens, who only know the service in relation to its function, to discover the private space of the RATP maintenance workrooms.
By asking 12 photographers to reflect on 12 major sites of the RATP, the SEDP – which is the company’s real estate branch – is thereby pursuing its original work in the fields of architecture and photography.


Photographers : Pascal Aimar, Thierry Ardouin, Denis Bourges, Gilles Coulon, Olivier Culmann, Mat Jacob, Caty Jan, Philippe Lopparelli, Bertrand Meunier, Patrick Tourneboeuf
