Des Armes (Weapons) is a poem by the Franco-Monegasque Léo Ferré (1916-1993) drawn from a larger unpublished work, written in the immediate aftermath of the May 1968 protests in France and entitled Lamentations front of Sorbonne. Published in 1969 in issue 5 of the anarchist journal La Rue. I have started to photograph this poem in light painting in the great southern network of the abandoned Quarries of Paris. This is only the beginning.
