sans papiers rue charlot


Tonight as I was photographing the streets of in the marais at night, i came across a really fab art installation with a powerful and moving message on the corner of rue Charlot / rue de Bretagne.

There is an entire external wall of a building covered with colour images of people (french) photographed with their identity card or passport standing next to a person with the status of a "sans papiers" (a person without papers).

The prerequisite to be photographed with a "sans papiers" (they are striking in the location where the photo is taken) is to present one's passport or identity card.
