Photographer Laurent Kronental has spent four years photographing the postmodern Parisian housing estate of Noisy-le-Grand, erected after the Second World War to house rural refugees and foreign migrants. His ongoing series, Souvenir d’un Future, which covers several enclaves of the Parisian suburbs, is a tribute to the senior citizens stranded in what is known as the ‘Grands Ensembles’ of the Paris region [from www.messynessychic.com].
