play_circle_filled WoW ! Just received this amazing @insideoutproject ! WE ARE THE DREAM • Montgomery, AL, USA • 2473 Portraits • We are The Dream is a mosaic of humanity, of home, of hope on one of the most historic streets in America, Dexter Avenue. Thousands of local participants from all parts of the city came share a desire to present a more accurate portrait of Montgomery from the “inside”—a community of individuals who are loving, intelligent, proud, passionate, creative, and evolving together. “We are The Dream” reminds us that the power to transform exists within each of us; that an engaged loving community is the way forward. #wearethedream #insideoutproject

photo_library When I was 19, I was spending my nights pasting small posters framed with paint in the streets of paris. I got an email from a student of Ecole du Louvre, his name was Emile and he told me that he noticed my work and that he was writing an essay on the bridge between art in the streets and Museums.. Even if I was afraid it could be some police trying to frame me, I met him in the middle of the night on a bench in paris .. At this point in my life I was doing everything by myself and never thought that « artist » could be a « job ».. I now realize how naive about art I was and maybe that’s what gave me the freedom to do whatever I wanted. As I didn’t know how to write (I still don’t and Marco helps me), every time I had a text to do, I would ask Emile, so he wrote the foreword of my first book ... He then interviewed my friends from Clichy Montfermeil for the book we were doing with @ladjly
One day he came to me and said, I think you need an assistant to help you, even more so if you are going to travel... I didn’t know if I could pay a salary. I was 22 and I didn’t need much but Emile had 2 kids and it was a big commitment on both sides.
And that’s how it’s started ... when I traveled for the first time to the Middle East he backed us up from Paris.. and then we traveled to Sierra Leone, Liberia, Kenya, Sudan, India, Cambodia , Brazil ... For the first 3 years, we planned every single project together and slowly built a team .. we survived a few gunshots and I’ll always remember his mother driving him to the airport asking me to bring him back alive ! 
Émile became one of my closest friend and he will always be.. last week was his last project at the Louvre as he decided to try to challenge himself and live a new adventure.
Even if I am sad to see Emile leaving the team, I know that we’ll always be here for each other. Anything anytime !
Long live Emile and Merci

En Français car elle n’aimait pas que je fasse l’américain... Agnès était près de la tombe de Jacques Demy, elle faisait semblant de dormir, ou de mourir. Elle avait planté le grand arbre il y a très longtemps et fait installer un banc pour pouvoir s'asseoir près de lui. Elle m'a dit, un jour j'irais rejoindre Jacques ici et ça semblait lui faire plaisir. Agnès croyait en l'amour, au couple, aux couples, elle disait que faire les choses à deux c'est beau, que savoir qu'on peut compter sur l'autre, c'est merveilleux.

Aujourd'hui, Agnès a été rejoindre Jacques pour l'éternité au terme d'une belle et longue vie.

Agnès, je sourirai toujours en pensant à toi.
