An essay of an imaginary country populated by real inhabitants.
Somewhere in the Middle East is an ongoing project. While Palestine does not still exist on world maps, to by-pass the borders of Israel became an average imagination to realize an album of a country which does not exist, yet.
Rafah, Sinai, Cairo, West Bank, Jordan Valley
In the suite of State of Siege (ed. Actes Sud), this personnal trip around Palestine would like to document the situation in Middle East, precisely in Palestine, a country wich is not yet visible on our world map.
This photographic passage between Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, all around Israel and Palestine with some written diary and old re-collected photographs from inside would like to help us to imagine how this country wich doesn’t exist yet, could look alike.
Every meets, every doors, at every turn, in every place skim through and experienced over there contribute to show the real situation.
Also by this impossible and out of time trip I would like to get onto the newsreel differently.
