Photographer's Note

Alignment of sampans on the River of the Perfumes with Hooted. If the site seems idyllic on the photograph, let us not mislead we pas there: 15 000 people live in a permanent way on the sampans, kinds of boats installed along the river of the Perfumes with Hooted, in floating shantytowns. The life of this population is characterized by economic precariousness, promiscuity, the medical problems, the difficulties dependent on the schooling and the work of their young children, with the weakest incomes and most unstable of the city.
