De la Commune (1871) à Mai 68, voici un aperçu des 80 photos que j’ai réalisées cet été. L’incrustation de photographies historiques dans des vues contemporaines ouvre d’étonnantes fenêtres sur le passé. Ainsi, l’événement qui n’avait pas nécessairement laissé de trace matérielle retrouve une véritable existence et la ville d’aujourd’hui se voit littéralement habiter par son histoire.
