Faces of refugees

I went to Stalingrad to meet migrants from Soudan by making their portraits in “live”, they were happy to be drawn and painted; it is important for them to make contact, to be represented and to be visible.

Some like Salam or Nasredine just come and sleep outside and do not speak any English nor French nor they take courses organized by associations outside every night at 6 pm outside near the rotonde.
Others, like Ibrahim Abdou or are in France for a year and staying at the hotel or in the center and take French lessons in schools.
