Lumière des Roses Gallery presents La Zone: reffering to a 19th century military area at the edge of Paris which became, throughout the XXth century a slum area.  Poor people excluded from the center of Paris started to settle down there living in awful conditions (in 1926,  La Zone was inhabitated by around 42.000 people). The exhibition unveils a hundred photographs from 1910-1960, enlightening the history of people living in La Zone.
