France is home to the largest number of black people in Europe. The majority of them, around 60 percent, come from the former colonies in Africa, while another sizeable community comes from the former colonies and territories in the Caribbean. In Paris, who is home to more blacks than anywhere else in the country, the community is most noticeable in the 10th District, especially around the Château d'Eu neighborhood. “I hustle here,” says Fabrice, from the Ivory Coast, who works as a middle man between hair stylists and people on the streets. “I have to do what I have to do,” he adds, as he runs after a woman who comes out of a metro station. This scene is so common here. I photographed Nuno, whose parents are from Angola and who was born in Portugal, in this district.
