I'll go see the Casbah

Portraits of Casbadjis and streets of the Casbah.

Marseille, in the Plaine neighborhood, on the marketplace. "Algier Casbah, Algier Casbah", I can hear this cry of elation, balancing between joy and despair. This man is shouting, I run into him, I can see him, I look at him. I promised myself to come back to take a picture of him.
