People of Paris

“Les gens du 11″ is an Instagram-based project capturing the diversity and character of Paris’ 11th arrondissement through a series of portraits.

Posting 2 or 3 times a week, we reveal who and what the arrondissement is about: workers, entertainers, bartenders, party-goers, etc.. Each photo comes with a short dialog, giving another input to “read” the portrait.

Chaï Chaï Films produces the photos as well as elaborates the digital strategy of “Les gens du 11″.
