“She came to see. I have no photo of Simon to show her, no trace except for these stolen shots, taken from the windows of his home overlooking the Jaurès metro station: the canal, cars, neighbourhood life, and this handful of Afghan refugees beneath the Lafayette arch... She watches with me, She questions me, we watch the seasons of this last year of my life with Simon pass, the final months of the refugees’ wearying battle to find a place here in Paris... Jaurès is a non- premeditated film. I shot these scenes on digital video almost instinctively, as if to keep a trace of my love story with Simon.”

Portrait of Martín Zapater (1797)

Martín Zapater y Clavería, born in Zaragoza on November 12th 1747, came from a family of modest merchants and was taken in to live with a well-to-do aunt, Juana Faguás, and her daughter, Joaquina de Alduy. He studied with Goya in the Escuelas Pías school in Zaragoza from 1752 to 1757 and a friendship arose between them which was to last until the death of Zapater in 1803.
