Refugees’s portraits

I went for portraits of Sudanese migrants and refugees in Stalingrad, they were happy to be drawn and painted. It is important for them to make a connexion, to be represented & to be visible.

Some like Salam Nasredine or 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.
