These compositions are very special to me, I made them with flowers growing in former refugees camps, next to my place in the North of Paris, where hundreds of migrants were staying for months, in a camp next to the highway in terrible conditions, in winter with small tents, rats, and no access to decent water.
The pieces of mirror were found on site. I think about what was reflected on these broken pieces.
Now they have been evacuated, the camps are a bit further North of Paris, in the same bad conditions. Small flowers are growing on the ground were they lived, they hoped for a better future. What is transmitted from this to the flowers? They was more than 1500 people living there this winter,I spent New year's Eve there with volunteers from a neighbor's organization, it was a very happy moment despite the situation. As a photographer I never took any pictures of them, it felt wrong to me. Now I take pictures of what is left. Nothing, only memories.
Profit of these sales will go to an organization distributing food to refugees here in Paris.
