“The face is what forbids us to kill” – Emmanuel Levinas

It is said that diversity is wealth, I just show it as Confucius said: “A picture is worth a thousand words”. I bet that showing it in its simple beauty, we will find it beautiful. Ethics arises from aesthetic emotion. ‘Cergy’s faces’ is a cry against any kind of attacks to human being beauty.

By showing an accumulation of faces, we can only be astonished by the world creativity that these human landscapes reveal with sole ingredients, two eyes, a mouth, a nose and two ears.
