42 portraits narrate the history of first-generation immigrants who came to Marseille, in order to give a human face to a silent majority whose eyes, smiles and poses are very expressive. Abed Abidat photographed Chibanis and Chibanias, ordinary, low-profile people. He did not steal their soul, he took a tall-tale piece of their lives.
