Description

Located in the south of France, the site of Camp de Rivesaltes is heavily laden with emotion. Originally constructed as a military base, it was used to detain civil populations several times between 1939 and 2007, including the administrative detention of thousands of Jews, who would be transported to Auschwitz and killed. Later, French auxiliaries who served in the Algerian War and their families passed through. The various groups who have occupied the site all have one thing in common: they were displaced against their free will, abandoned there for years, and regarded as outcasts. This series of images by French-Spanish photographer Flore revisits the camp’s turbulent history.
