    "I was walking around Paris when I heard from far away some kids chatting and laughing. I saw that it was a group of scout kids and I knew that there was an interesting shot there. So, I placed myself in the middle of the street so that they were facing me. All of a sudden, one kid takes his friend by the shoulder and shouts “look over there!” and I quickly took the shot as he was raising his arm to point at something behind me." © Valentine de Villemeur

    “A Fragile Utopia 72” I began A Fragile Utopia with the belief that I was creating a project where I would document my daily life in Brooklyn. Understanding at the time that this city was a refuge for me culturally and politically as I grew up in a rural small town. I’ve come to realize that A Fragile Utopia is instead a construction of a world that I want to see in my mind. © Brad Jones
