Phémina Festival 2020 : Marie-Pierre Dieterlé


When is tomorrow?

The women I photographed are homeless.

Some for years, others while trying to find accommodation.

All of them move from accommodation centers to hotels, sometimes passing through the streets.

All of them are there following a break in their life that reminds us of previous ones.

During three years in Paris and in the Paris region, I met them to try to understand their journey. They agreed to be photographed.

I followed each of them for several months, stealthily, catching looks, a situation, through my lens. I wanted them in the way they were: worthy. without voyeurism, nor victimization.

Simply, over the days, I photographed their deep loneliness and their expectation of a better day.

These images retrace moments of life with what keeps hope alive: children, a galley companion, friendship, a smile, a poem …

Most of them have found accommodation, others are still waiting.

Like Christine who, one day, asked me: “When is tomorrow?” ”
