“It’s been 20 years that I have been walking up the street Sainte-Marthe… Funny enough it isn’t even long, but it has lot’s of suprises : it’s walls covered with drawings and messages, it’s locals with vibrant accents and lives. It’s my village…” Jérôme Gorin, 45, lives and works in the heart of the area Saint-Marthe, in the 10th district in Paris for nearly 20 years now. This district has become ‘his’ Paris. Winner of the competition Fisheye x The Photographic encounters of the 10th arrondissement, his work will be exhibited from the 17th of October till the 5th of November at the librairie le 29.
