But over the hours and days, his gaze finally captured. Thirty of his clichés are to be discovered in the Alex exhibition in the Roya, at the Chapel of the mercy of Breil-sur-Roya until October 23rd.

The emotion of the victims

Thorough work to capture the drama, the disarray of the population, the difficulty for rescuers to work. And then there is also solidarity that emerged from the drama. A year later, the wounds are always open. The thirty photos exposed upsets the first visitors. "I have tears in my eyes. And I think it will make a lot of people who will come because it was so suddenly in addition, so shocking" explains a resident.

Photos are also offered for sale. The entire money raised money will be donated to the Town Hall of Breil-sur-Roya for the victims and the reconstruction of the municipality.
