When young Saint-Martiners photograph their daily life

HeadMade Factory expose le 30 juin à La Cour les photographies de jeunes confiés à l'Unité éducative de la PJJ.

Last HMF event before summer break will take place on June 30th 2017 at la Cour, Marigot. This time no HMF nor guest artists's works on display but photographs taken by handed over to justice etenagers. They have worked under the supervision of educators from the Unité Educative de la Protection Judicaire de la jeunesse (French Department of Justice) and HMF photographer Laurent Bayly.

These young people are currently working on Identity and urban landscape. These topics turned out to be relevant for this part of Saint Martin Youth in search for meaning. This HMF/ PJJ joint project benefited from support from The Collectivité de Saint Martin and The DAC Guadeloupe (French department of culture).

La Cour is located in Marigot, close to the court house, opposite the former Library
