I AM - CHARLIE
Place de la République - 7 janvier 2015
Place de la République - 11 janvier 2015
Place de la République encore, 15 novembre 2015
Paysage parisien de l'état d'urgence

FROM C. TO B.
January 7th of 2015. Spontaneous reunion gathering Parisians
place de la République,a few hours after Charlie Hebdo's attacks.
January 11th of 2015. A march is organized through the capital.
As we can't move anymore in the streets, it turns into a massive grouping.
Friday, November 13th, same year, the Bataclan.
The following day, President Hollande asks Parisians to stay at home.
Sunday, November 15th, I'm not the only one place de la République,
discovering the "Fluctuat Nec Mergitur" sign.
It is the "state of emergency" since then. In the country, in the city.
Unable to work for a while because of what was going on in my hometown,
I coupled my photos with a few lyrics by the Eagles of Death Metal...
