Diez fotos de aquella primavera, que fue ayer…

Contar la historia de un movimiento social callejero, #NuitDebout. Manifestación social de una angustia social profunda, a mi modo de ver: Amor y anarquía en París, la primavera de 2016.
I am looking at your series “Love and Anarchy in Paris- Spring 2016”, I am left a bit perplexed as to its intent. There are specific images which are intriguing and enigmatic – the woman in the first image waiting and watching, seemingly unaware of the political graffiti as she leans on the rather bourgeois and heavy neo-classical balustrade. Another image which as an immediate effect on the viewer is the next to last image of the female police in riot gear with a wistful expression on her face. It may or may not be reality, by you have caused her to look thoughtful in an unguarded moment.In image two, you show the love, but it is very difficult to tell that this scene has anything to do with a ‘street’ movement – i wish there were obvious signs of protest in the scene.One thing to be conscious of is the use of signage in photographs! There are so many people who will miss the humor in a photograph because they do not have the language skills. How many people in outside France really would understand “la nuit c’est pour baiser”… This series of photographs would be helped immensely by a short and cleverly written statement giving the viewers a sense of time and place – what is this movement, and who is the force behind it. This could be explained in one paragraph that would help the viewers of the work contextualize it… “Love and Anarchy in Paris- Spring 2016”.

En verdad, se trata de una selección muy parcial de otras series, distintas y complementarias:
