A huge crowd in Lyon. Young, old, black, white... for this march in homage to Charlie Hebdo and the victims of the January 2015 attacks.
That day, in Paris, 40 of the world's most important leaders participated. Throughout France, a series of rallies were held to honour the victims of the Charlie Hebdo shooting, the Montrouge shooting and the Porte de Vincennes headquarters, as well as to express their support for freedom of expression.
French government officials estimated that the rallies had gathered up to 3.7 million people across the country, making them the largest public gathering in France since 1944, when Paris was liberated from the Nazis at the end of World War II, and also the largest gathering in French history.
In Lyon, of course, this march gathered several hundred thousand people. A strange and strong atmosphere emerged from this colourful crowd, but united by the slogan "I am Charlie".
As in all these rare moments of communion and national solidarity, we wanted to be part of it, to capture these portraits, these looks, sometimes lost as if dumbfounded for the ignoble, and others convinced to live a real moment of fraternity.
A pencil in her hair...
We found Charlie ... he was in Lyon.
