I met this guy on the street. I asked him if I could take a photo of him. After I took it, he introduced himself to me as a photographer like me.
Almost one year after this day, he invited me to his exhibition in the pub by the hill Montmartre. We met each other again. Julien is from Lille, a city of northern France. He took photos in the demonstration as well as on the street, actively participating in social movements. He willingly gave things to others. However, he smoked much. He maybe burned a bad side of his heart by smoking cigarettes. He liked this my expression.
The ecobag he carries in the photo is from the organic supermarket where he worked.
