Who are those flowers for ?

by Héloïse Faure

I had been thinking about it many times.
When I see someone holding a bunch of flowers, I always want to ask them :
“Who are those flowers for ?”

I spent a few hours on Columbia Market on a sunny sunday, 2nd of august 2015.
I was surrounded by dozens of people holding all sorts of flowers in their arms and I wanted to speak to all of them.
I picked a few of them, like you would pick flowers.

I asked them to write something in my notebook, to tell me who those flowers were for.
Flowers, plants, trees.
