On the Threshold of a Spring

Because it is the most densely populated of the Île-de-France region (Paris), the department of Seine-Saint-Denis is then very vulnerable to the coronavirus pandemic.

It is there, in the town of Bagnolet that we have been in lockdown starting 17 March until May the 11th. As a couple and photographers, it is under this constraint that we decided to open our eyes to the district we have been living in for 3 years. Accustomed to exploring other territories, we challenge our photographic comfort zone. Instead of closing in on ourselves, we decide to photograph our neighbours, then to glean the signs of spring in full bloom throughout the neighbourhood.

Social distancing means that we never cross a doorstep. Each picture is made on the landings and from a distance. Our camera captures this suspended moment of our neighbours' threshold during this troubled time when the future challenges us all. Through these encounters we tell the personal story of our lockdown.

Au seuil d'un printemps

Parce qu’il est le plus densément peuplé d'Île-de-France, le département de Seine-Saint-Denis est aussi très fragilisé par la pandémie du coronavirus, COVID-19.

C’est là, dans la ville de Bagnolet que nous sommes confinés depuis le 17 mars. En tant que couple de photographe, c’est sous cette contrainte que nous décidons d’ouvrir les yeux sur l’espace que nous habitons depuis 3 ans. Habitués à explorer d’autres territoires, nous bousculons notre zone de confort photographique. Au lieu de nous refermer sur nous-mêmes, nous décidons de photographier nos voisins et glaner à travers le quartier les signes du printemps en pleine éclosion.

Distanciation sociale et gestes barrières obligent, chaque photographie se fait sur les paliers et à distance. Notre appareil capte un peu de l'intimité de nos voisins dans cette période où le virus nous repousse dans les limites de nos espaces clos. À travers ces rencontres, nous racontons notre confinement.
