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.
