Le Feuilletage #3 | Raymond Meeks and George Weld

About the book The Inhabitants - Thursday, November 9, 7pm

On the occasion of Paris Photo and as a prelude to the monographic exhibition which will take place at the end of 2024 at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, Raymond Meeks, accompanied by George Weld, presents his latest book, The Inhabitants, on Thursday, November 9 at 7pm.

In the summer 2022, Raymond Meeks followed refugees crossing rivers, forests and wastelands from southern Spain to the northern French coast on the outskirts of Calais.
Published by MACK, The Inhabitants shows not the men but the obstacles they encounter on their way, the traces left by their passage, the ruins of their ephemeral camps and the nature that sheltered them. Meeks thus achieves a tour de force: to evoke, with such delicacy, a subject as important and contemporary as migration. Accompanied by George Weld’s sensory poetry, The Inhabitants is haunted by the fugitive presence of these clandestine passengers, and is a moving metaphor for the displacement of those deprived of the very possibility of inhabiting.

The event will be held in English.
The Feuilletage #3 will be followed by a book signing session with the authors.

Tickets must be purchased through the online ticket service.
Book available at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson bookshop and on the website.
