The only difference is this piece of paper

France's undocumented immigrants live in constant fear of deportation because they do not have the correct papers.

French photographer, Fabien Breuvart, has put together a series of images of anonymous 'sans-papiers', posing with sympathetic French citizens displaying their ID, in a powerful display of solidarity.

The point of the photos is of course that the only difference between the two people photographed is merely a piece of paper.

You can see more photos and information in the Guardian, here.
