Photography is everywhere in the city. Action is frequent. La Ville de Paris, together with Fondation Carmignac, took an initiative to “preserve the forests of Central Africa”. The exhibit “Kivu’s Forest” by photographer Guerchom Ndebo is presented on the gates surrounding la tour Saint-Jacques, at this occasion. Images of desolation, pain, sufferings, poverty, war, contrasting with the peace of the place on this sunny Sunday morning, and the tower, symbol of a far away past long lost and yet still vividly present in Paris.
