PARIS, 21 December 1997 (AFP) – Fifty families have moved into an office building of 5,000 m2, 61 rue d’Avron, unoccupied for three years. According to the elected Commons, "this action emphasizes the plight of thousands of families and individuals denied the right to housing" Six years later, a dozen families live here. This book paints a picture of the building and its last occupants, waiting every day since 1997 to be relocated, fearing every minute of being deported. Portraits hidden, privacy, the layout of the book invites the reader to go beyond the facade of the building unsafe and open the door to meet his people.
