*Inimaginable is an association that provides support and financing for photography projects that concern human rights and discrimination. Too many reports today are never published due to lack of funding, and the images are never seen by the public. Inimaginable uses a participatory financing platform (KissKissBankBank) to raise production budgets for such projects. The photograph selected each month will be displayed in a poster campaign in the heart of Paris.
Every month, Le Journal present a preview of the image picked by the selecting committee.
