Thierry Chantegret, photojournalist, explores the relationship between cities and their inhabitants. He has worked in various countries such as India and Argentina, but more recently in a small French town, Charleville Mezieres, where the Poet Arthur Rimbaud was born and raised. The Ardennes Museum commissioned him to help commemorate the town’s 400th birthday, and allowed him to work in the poet s house. Thierry now plans to settle in Charleville Mezieres, which has been severely affected by unemployment. In addition to developing his personal artistic creations, he also organises educational workshops with schools and welfare centers.
