This series of photos made by Mathieu Pernot was realized in Paris, by Villemin Square where many Afghan migrants gather. Invisible, silent and anonymous, reduced to their simple forms, they sleep and hide themselves from the public gaze, with drawing from a world which no longer wants to see them. Both present and absent they remind us of the bodies found on the battlefields of a war we no longer see.
