J'irai voir la Casbah

I'll go see the Casbah

Photographs by Abed Abidat

Portraits of Casbadjis and streets of the Casbah.

Marseille, in the Plaine neighborhood, on the marketplace. "The Algiers Casbah, the Algiers 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.
