Far from any ethnocentrist theory, the French photographer presented a series of highly anthropological images with which he observed, denuded of any judgment, the daily situations of ethnic minorities.

The exhibit provided a window to establish a common ground with the other, the essential meeting points connecting humans through a basic sense of humanity.

The exhibit Peoples is a photo-essay on the situation of 14 ethnic minorities around the world among them: Akhas (Thailand), Ayoreos and Lenhuas (Paraguay), Kanaks (France), Mayas (Mexico), Himbas (Namibia), Innu (Canada), Surmas (Ethiopia), Palawans (Philippines).

The photographs in this exhibit were displayed in the Musee de l’Homme in Paris, in 2006
