“Les Étrangers”, a photo series of strangers and their temporary homes, was taken in Paris by young Czech photographer Barbora Pivoňková during 2009.
Barbora explains: “The series gathers people from all around world who happened to live in Paris, often for a brief period of time. I was fascinated with the topic of one city where people come to stay knowing they would be leaving it at some point. I approached many stories and cultures while working on this, but they all have one thing in common: every single person I photographed changed his little living space into a specific world, simulating home.”
Barbora I love you, and I hope you know it! And we had a great time in paris… hope everyone of us is doing well! Lots of love from Berlin!
