I will be in Roubaix tomorrow evening for the opening of the Roubaix at Twenty exhibition, a showcase of images exploring the lives of young people in France's poorest city. The doors will open at six pm (18:00) at La Cave aux Poets and I will look forward to seeing some of you there.
Here are a few more of the images that will be showing at this exhibit.

Exhibition Information in French:
Dès le jeudi 2 octobre la Cave aux Poètes est ravie de présenter sur ses murs l'exposition photo 'Avoir 20 ans à Roubaix en 2014'.
Fruit du reportage photo réalisé par Zoriah Miller, invité par Yael Naim & David Donatien à poser son oeil sur la jeunesse roubaisienne, cette série de portraits est l'occasion rêvée de redécouvrir notre ville, en tordant le cou aux idées reçues.
