If the suburbs are a question of geography, for Patrick Zachmann, they are a story. A national story. As I know his work well, I can say that I have never actually had the feeling that Patrick Zachmann was photographing "the" suburbs. On the contrary! Suburbs, people, stories. As Patrick forges modest links with those he photographs, he knows their individuality. Their respect. These different stories that he photographed outside the noise and fury, a tight knit community. In thirty years of images, it is as much immigration as the evolution of the French society that we can see.
