Bruno Fert - fotografia di un interno di tenda di migrante

The exhibition of Bruno FertPercorsi interiori. Fotografie e raccolta di testimonianze”, will be inaugurated today, Thursday, 15th February, at 6pm, at the Alliance française of Turin (Via Saluzzo 60). Fert, French photojournalist, will give a voice to the stories of men and women who are fleeing from poverty and war with a photographic project achieved in collaboration with Medici Senza Frontiere. Fert tells the stories of migrants, takes photos of the interior of the tents and temporary facilities in which they found shelter. They are portraits of men and women, of the places in which they live: dwellings furnished with few things brought to the camps in Greece and France as memories of previous lives.

I decided to meet migrants that cross the Mediterranean to seek refuge in Europe, photographing the interiors of their refuges in villages – or “jungles” – both in France and in Greece, and I collected their stories thanks to the collaboration with MSF”, explains Fert. “Dwell is something that we all have in common. Temporary shelters of migrants reflect their personalities in the same way our houses reflect us. I would like people to relate to this common denominator, to enter the house of someone else observing where he/she lives”.

François Dumont, manager of Communication and Advocacy of MSF, will participate at the inauguration to present the commitment of the organization on the topic of migration and to share the testimonies of the people that were helped thorough the migratory route, from the countries of origin to the European borders. The Group of Turin of Medici Senza Frontiere will also offer the try of the viewers at 360 degrees of the Milionidipassi Experience, experience of the exhausting trips of migrants on land and sea, and of the terrible conditions of the refugee camps.

“ We want to put people in the shoes of people that are forced to hit the road, often putting their own life at risk, with the omen that this experience will involve people in helping vulnerable people that we meet every day even in our cities”, explains François Dumont of MSF.

The exhibition can be visited from 15th to 22nd February with the following timetables:

  • Monday-Thursday: 12am – 8pm
  • Friday: 12am- 6pm
  • Saturday: 9am – 1pm
