Paris has about 600 cul de sacs, cités, villas and squares: streets that end in a dead end. Cul-de-sacs. Within the Périphérique, Paris is the most densely populated city in Europe, with more than 20,000 inhabitants per square kilometre. The photographs offer a glimpse of a part of Paris that usually goes unnoticed. The photographs were taken between 2011 and 2021. Most of them during an artist-in-residence period in autumn 2015, thanks to the Flemish government.
