Clameur. Classés chômeurs.

_ En France des hommes et des femmes vivent cette expérience dans leur existence personnelle. Ils semblent discrets, presque dissimulés, restant une face cachée de notre contemporanéité. En allant à leur rencontre il devient possible de rendre plus lisibles ces histoires singulières et pleines d’espoir. Leur expérience, doit être racontée. Chez eux, chez moi, dans un café ou encore dans un parc, nous avons partagé un vrai moment d’échanges. J’ai découvert des extraits de vie qu’ils avaient besoin d’exprimer.

Réaliser le positif, c’est ce que je voulais leur dire et c’est cela qu’ils ont voulu clamer.

_ In our society, the job which we occupy is a reference. When we find ourselves out of work, it’s a part of our identity which gets lost. Today with more than 5 million concerned in France, the test of unemployment is more and more common. It is the principal concern of the population, becoming a persistent social, economic and political issue. In spite of the obsession with full employment, men and women do not always work. However they aren’t inactive, if this interruption upsets the lives of those concerned, it also means having time for oneself. It is a test which can then be transformed into a real opportunity, where each person can review and reconstruct themself, consciously or not. It is the moment to evolve, to surpass oneself or even change direction. By meeting men and women in this situation I hope to make their stories of hope more understandable.

Realize the positive, it’s what I wanted to tell them and that’s what they wanted to cry out.
