For a few months, I have been noticing a sort of gap between what I was seeing everyday in the streets and what was shown in books, magazines and on TV... This representation followed a certain image that had nothing to do with reality. A cultural gap and a filter, created to preserve a certain image, made with a stereotyped Eastern culture that is omnipresent and always renewed.
