Several months of a rich collaboration with La Lanterne Editions (Toulouse) lead to the release of the book Mebarka Bent el Khass today!
This tale of the Algerian Sahara told me about the desert, its environment, its colors, its sensations; about wind and sensuality too. Mebarka also told me of energy, femininity, determination, intelligence and benevolence, of a way of life that goes against the grain of a common norm. Attention: the artistic collaboration around Mebarka is not a work of illustration, but an imagification – setting in image, imagination of images.
A big thank you to the whole team of La lanterne for having allowed this project! You want your copy of Mebarka : it’s this way !
