In 2011, I met an American girl in Paris, shortly before she left to discover her North African roots. Her mom is North American and her dad North African. She grew up in a very conservative state in the south of the U.S. and felt impelled to reconnect with a part of herself.

Before her departure, she talked to me at length about the meaning of her trip, her dual culture, what she read and saw about women's place in that country and the photographic concept she imagined around these issues.

Once her trip achieved, I proposed her to give life to her project if she became the model.
