Photo report of the association’s activities
As a major player in the fight against exclusion, the Alynéa association wants to help change the collective representation of these men and women who survive on the streets. The Foundation asked photographer Jean-Jacques Bernard to compile a photo report on the lives of people taking refuge in shelters, to help the association better illustrate the many different faces of social emergency: “By showing Alynéa’s shelters we can make visible what was invisible, and attract attention to the kind of people we generally prefer not to see, because we are embarrassed, frightened, or scared of ending up like that ourselves.”
This photo report was used by the association to update its website and to illustrate its institutional communication documents. After having been displayed at the Gattefossé headquarters, the photographs are now hung in the association’s offices, corridors, common areas or meeting rooms in Oullins.
