Joana Hadjithomas and Kahil Joreige, Diary of a photographer, 1997-2006

The «Latent Images / Diary of a photographer» book brings together 38 contact print photographs selected from the hundreds of films used and never developed, taken by photographer Abdallah Farah between 1997 and 2006. This book of 1312 pages, published in a limited edition - two editions of 75 numbered and signed copies, one in French and the other in English - offers an immersion to the very heart of these latent images. The description of the images replaces the photographs themselves; short fragments of text describe the invisible images while creating a new imagined space.
