Along 360km of borders separating Haiti from the Dominican Republic, 55km belong to the river Massacre, sadly famous since 1937 when it turned red after the killing of more than 30 000 Haitians by the Dominican army. Since then, thousands of people born on the Dominican soil from Haitians parents who first came there seeking jobs are now victims of discrimination, stigmatization, deprivation of identity. Annalisa Natali Murri captured the traces left by this event in her series “The Black Line”.

 
Baudouin Moaunda Les Fantômes des corniches 04 © Baudouin Mouanda

At night, when he was a student, Baudouin Mouanda would go out in the street looking for a quiet and lighted place to study. The situation is still the same now electricity cuts remain. When the sun sets students fill the streets of Brazzaville where we can hear them recite their history lessons. In his series “Les fantômes des corniches” Baudouin Mouanda walks through the city’s streets meeting these youngsters whose thirst of learning doesn’t stop because of a lack of means.

 
Claire Delfino Belinda 02 © Claire Delfino

Not yet an adult but not a child anymore, Belinda is 15 years old and lives with her parents in a little city north of Picardie when she gets pregnant. Claire Delfino follows her during her pregnancy trying to understand how Belinda can assume both her mother-to-be and teenager roles. With writer Louise Allavoine, she leads this project as a literary and photographical tale in which she wishes to show the public a young girl’s evolution through her parts as a mother, a daughter, a teenager, a girlfriend.

Marc Vidal Voyage au bout de l ennui 12 © Marc Vidal

In the north of France, where neighborhoods are apart from the big cities, Marc Vidal walks through infinite streets where red brick houses all look alike. He takes pictures of the obvious absence of life and motion, the astonishing symmetry of the houses, gardens well maintained by their owners. He questions himself about boredom and lack of wonder in front of the architectural and cultural poorness of these residential areas.

Melody Garreau l'Innocence ternie 01 © Melody Garreau

Chloé and her mother have a turbulent relationship: they argue and make up straight away. In the search of an identity, suffering from the lack of a father figure, she is 17 when her sister, photographer Melody Garreau, dedicates her a series called “L’innocence ternie”. Like some kind of anthem – in her own words – she combines poetic image and documentary approach to recompose the complexity of a triangular relationship where she fills the third corner

Nature takes back its right on abandoned thermal resorts in the north of Greece. For many years these resorts where a touristic destination and today they’re invaded by wild dogs living in the lobby, turtles joyfully swimming in the basins filled with flowers but also Bulgarian migrant workers for a season and some couples once the night has fallen. Nele Gülck photographed these new inhabitants before nature finishes to swallow the places or new investors seize them.

The urge of living happily permanently, dreams of a heavenly elsewhere… desires that everyone seems to have in common, yet are these desires at reach? Robert Rutöd travelled from fairs to exhibition areas for almost ten years to build his series “Fair(y) Tales” and try to show us the amount of propositions we have at our disposal in order to reach some kind of heaven. Sleep consultants, beauty guidance, new gadgets… everything is gathered to take to paradise. Or at least close enough

"Unperson"

According to George Orwell, we become an unperson when we disappear, when our record is erased. Tim Franco refers to this term when addressing the north-Koreans and their decision to disappear from their country to begin the building of a new identity when arriving in south-Korea. Using a particular chemical process on Polaroid’s negatives normally unused, he reveals these north-Koreans defectors portraits on their often vainly journey. With a rather uncertain result, this process captures the fear and threat of being arrested along the way.
