Paris Nord by Myr Muratet
“Paris Nord” by Myr Muratet, offers a sensitive look at the fragile, precarious and inventive forms developed by populations living on the margins.
Through images taken from the photographer’s major series (Paris-Nord, Wasteland, CityWalk, The flora of the wasteland), we discover the interstices of the city as so many places in which the personal and private are nestled, where the wild and the forgotten coexist with the domestic and the everyday. This intimacy is opposed by massive and anonymous forms, which fill in the loopholes to prevent occupation, pushing further the communities that depend on it.
A text by Manuel Joseph in the form of a flying notebook fits into the book without being attached to it.
