Perpignan’s Backstreets

In Perpignan‘s medieval streets, a backstreet community huddles together untouched by modernity. Bright, narrow shafts of sunlight taunt from above as children gather to play barefoot on the tarmac below. Between Perpignan’s twin identities of France and Catalonia, this Spanish, Arab and Romany district resists the mainstream, caught in its own arid, sun-scorched time capsule.
