Mourning on the morning after in Paris

In the light of the day, Paris picks up the pieces, grieving quietly outside the restaurant where shots rang out

As the world lit up in France’s tricolore flag, offering whatever support it could after a devastating series of attacks in Paris left at least 129 dead and 352 injured, Paris remained Paris in the morning, left to pick up the pieces. The day after these shootings and bombings, the restaurant where shots from a semi-automatic rang out, Le Carillona cafe-bar in the trendy Canal Saint-Martin area—became a shrine to strength. Below, these portraits from Michel Huneault capture the grief and the haunting remnants of the previous night’s horror.
