Street photography at the Goutte d’Or

I’ve been making some street photography at the Goutte d’Or during the summer festival. This neighborhood which was and still a working class area is unique. I’m living here since three years, I’ve always wanted to make street photography here but I prefered to take my time. Waiting to understand a bit and to get used to it. Some are saying you have to shoot photography with a new eye before you’re getting used to it. But I prefer sometimes to wait, to not make photograph like a tourist !

It was the chance for me to walk in the streets with my camera and meet people talk to them take portraits of them. Maybe its the first step to a little reportage about the area of the Goutte d’Or it’s more interesting for me tho make from the inside. With knowing more the stories of the people i’m taking pictures of. Especially when it’s a neighborhood that sometimes people are scared of because they heard bad stories… I have to admit stories are not all pink but I insist that in matter of security I feel more safe here than elswhere in Paris. People know each other here it’s a little village. Gentrifcation has already started since few years but I hope it won’t get futher it’s a good balance until now and it should stay like that otherwise it will loose it’s unique seal !
