The 31 artists tackled the theme of the invisibility of the person in a particular way, which in many cases corresponds to the non-person, or rather the being who is not recognised as a responsible being, holder of certain rights and duties. The non-person is the man (or woman) whose personality is taken away, every individual stripped of his or her human and civil rights: homeless people, migrants, non-EU citizens, elderly people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, battered or lonely women, insecure teenagers, fighters and martyrs of the resistance, mothers of missing children, the disabled and those excluded from the world of work.

The unrecognised and unpaid work, the pain of ageing and illness, the resistance to fatigue, the shame of diversity. (-) it is in these shots that the non-person, (-) becomes a person: it is enough to read what the photographers have written next to each of their shots to understand how much women are used to coming to terms with invisibility (…).
