If the “Rue des Lombards” was her “school of photography”, Jane Evelyne Atwood continues to work on the street. Fascinated by people and by exclusion, she has photographed the homeless of the capital, always with deep respect for others and with empathy.
With nothing but benches as their beds and the ceilings of the metro as a roof over their heads, the daily life of the homeless is punctuated by cold, hunger, disease and drugs. In this world of constraints and harshness, she spotlights the firefighters who help the homeless to work, the only source of hope for those dying on the capital’s sidewalks.
Through this report on poverty, the photographer testifies on the strength and courage they demonstrate each day in order to survive.
