The project L'elegance de vos absences (EVA), a work in memory of Pierre Roger Mercier «MAXIME», his grandfather hero and martyr of resistance, is a tribute to the «children of torment». It fully responds to the theme that is dear to it, that of forgotten memory and silent minorities. After having benefited from an artist’s residency at the Namur Cultural Centre (Abattoirs de Bomel) in 2019, the first part of this project «Better tomorrow» is born.

“Photography cannot change the world, but it can show the world, especially when the world is changing.” Gilles Mercier’s work is a beautiful illustration of this quote from Marc Riboud. It is with sensitivity and delicacy that Gilles highlights, in many of his series, the daily lives of minorities and communities that are either forgotten or misunderstood.
