Exhibition

Exhibition "Sans Titre"

The exhibition « sans titre » was created within the framework of the MERGING project by the University of Rennes, the association "Un Toit est un Droit", and a Photography firm.

The idea of ​​this exhibition was born after the realization of the case study in the WP3 in which it was asked to take pictures. By taking photos with the pinhole technique, it was possible to take artistic photos while preserving the anonymity of the residents.
