Passport, Catalogue irraisonnable Vol. 3
Passport is a book of portraits of migrants living in Paris.
Each portrait is illustrated with poetic texts by Atiq Rahimi.
From elsewhere, I recognise them at first glance – I who am usually hopeless with faces: there were times as a child when I’d bump into my father on the street and not see him – as if they were my own blood these men with thousands of kilometres behind them, who appear suddenly at Place de la République, or gathered near the Gare de l’Est station, or along the Canal St. Martin, eyes on the horizon.
