The photographs in this book were taken with an authentic polaroid camera in the city of Alger. The artist travelled in Alger for three years to collect pictures. He experienced a unique social interaction and creative process: he offered the picture to the person he shot, yet he kept the negative of the photo. He then created a book and an exhibition with those negatives.
