Paris has always been a cosmopolitan city and its current richness comes from all the foreign influences which stood out as landmarks in its whole history. Multicultural Paris / Paris la Métisse underlines Parisian cultural diversity through contemporary black and white pictures. The photographs illustrate migrant women and men who have left their native land, sometimes for a dream of freedom, often for a better life, to study, to work, to escape misery, wars or persecutions. The critically acclaimed exhibition aims at showing a humanist vision of the Parisian melting-pot through photographs representing life instants captured through the streets of the French capital during events, festivals and daily life.
Multicultural Paris / Paris la Métisse was created by authors/photographers Florence Batarière and Morgan Haël Jypsian.
