the hand of a slamer

... actually an amazing guy !


I was wandering around the "souk de la parole" in Toulouse to take some pics.


He got annoyed because he thought I shot him.


I walked to him and showed him my photos (remembers me something!...).


Then we talked


He is a slammer (he practices slam).

I listened to 3 of his slams ! great words, political and social sense ! I loved it.


He never speaks it loud in public. Too bad ! He's too shy. But he aslo wanders around poetry events like the "marathon des mots", attracted by it.


I took some portraits of him...


But he asked me not to publish them... Doesn't like to go public... in words as well as in image ! I respect that.


After a while, he asked me to let him alone. So I did. and he took his bottle.
