HOPE : "To have a roof over my head and a lil' chick to share it with."

The Sun has been down in Paris for a few hours now.
An uninterrupted crowd walks through Place de la Bastille, preoccupied by their evening plans.
The music that comes from Michel's small radio seems to be only heard by him. Small dance steps and a jovial face leave the crowd indifferent.

Yet Michel is no stranger to cameras and lenses, "hey, you know, I am asked to pose all the time, even by national television last week ..."
Michel, who has been in the streets for 35 years, was a house painter before a serious accident made him lose everything.
Forgotten by his brother: "He has a big ship, but he left with his wife ...", he is now hoping to find a roof over his head and a pretty girl to share it with.
