“[On the streets of Paris] people were … going up and down in their daily lives, not noticing, not seeing. I wanted to … run over to people, grab them, point and say, ‘Look! Why aren’t you looking at this? Why is this not doing anything to you?’ I realize now the residents… see it every single day and … become desensitized to it. It becomes the norm … to look after your own. How many times do you walk past a homeless person on the street (in any Western city) and … [not] even look?”
