When he discovered that his granddad had been a professional spy, Didier Mahieu, a painter, came across a lot of people whose only traces of having ever existed were the police and administrative records left behind in that family home.

This artistic attempt to give shape and face to people unknow, ordinary people caught in the cogwheels of life, constitutes an emotional tribute to humankind, to the invidual : unique, soon gone yet irreplaceable.
