The curtains fall

The "belle de Mai" is a neighborhood located near the Saint Charles train station, located in the 3rd arrondissement of Marseille.
La Belle de Mai has long been the headquarters of the tobacco factory in Marseille and place of Italian emigrants and arabes.C'était an exclusively working-class neighborhood.
Today it is a sensitive and lively. The 13,770 inhabitants are mostly employment difficulties. Unemployment is endemic (30%) despite the presence of many shops.
Weakened but worthy. Fragile and rebels. Lost in the middle of their cues, subjects photographs of W. Bunel expose themselves with modesty.
Each photograph exposes a universe, enclosed by two or three walls, open to a hypothetical elsewhere through a door or window. The viewer is invited to these people and feel the comforting familiarity of places; it is also able to detect the weight of a daily increasingly disembodied.
Beyond the tired and outdated aspect of most interiors, these are the paradoxes which impact most. In these people in later life, expected symbols of the sacred (statue of the virgin, rosaries and crucifixes others) oppose the most incongruous objects, even childish, like those colored lint and other naive paintings. Old age is often a return to childhood.
The colors also differ: in some bright, white sepulchral in others, exuberance opposes sobriety. The body, distorted by old age, denied by clothing for comfort with aesthetics, recount the past years. Few people are standing.
And that is all the talent of the photographer, despite his sharp frames and the care given to the balance of the image, to approach each model primarily with empathy, with gentleness and respect.
Yes, the approach of death is lonely, but it is touching and contains much of humanity under the gaze of W. Bunel.
