The photographs are a selection of the results of the project "Khym and Djessy on the way to happiness", which was carried out thanks to the scholarship of the Michael Horbach Foundation Protected content .

Genesis: A stay at the Kolumba Museum brought the photographer together with the couple: both fascinated him, attracted the attention of the visitors and radiated a casual joie de vivre. After a careful approach, they laughed at Bruno Frerejean, who wanted to photograph her. Further talks later came closer. Bruno asked Khym and Djessy if he could accompany them in everyday life and make them the protagonists of his project. There was a lot of laughter and joyful promise.

Project history: For 15 days, the photographer accompanied the dropouts, who deliberately chose a life without a roof, even to the Hambach Forest. Khym and Djessy showed solidarity with the activists against the grubbing-up and lived with them in dwellings in treetops. Bruno Frerejean did not see them as passive victims, but as committed artists (jugglers) who live on the streets.

Bruno Frerejean was born in France in Protected content , today he lives and works in Mallorca.
