Alisa Martynova in Normandy

Following on from her Nowhere Near project, carried out in Italy, Alisa Martynova in a dialogue between portraits and enigmatic landscapes, tells us about her encounters with migrants from different countries of the African continent: Rwanda, Congo, Senegal, Nigeria, Mali, Sierra Leone or Guinea. Some of them arrived in Normandy more than ten years ago, others settled only a few years ago; all have different histories and hopes, all speak at least two languages ​​and three or four dialects, some reject their culture of origin, others cherish them close to their hearts.
