Life in a French housing project remembered in photos – Banlieue Project

Faced with the planned demolition of the housing project where she grew up, Mahye decided to organise an open-air photography exhibition. It takes residents of “Les Groux”, in the French suburb of Fresnes, on a journey through their shared childhoods. The Banlieue Project team went to meet her to find out more.

Banlieue Project is a platform for residents of France’s disadvantaged suburbs to tell their own stories. We provide the camera and they film their experiences to break down clichés about the French “banlieues”.
