Photographs by Abed Abidat
Photographs of the city of Algiers, pictures based on Polaroid
The photographs in this book were taken with an authentic polaroid camera in the city of Alger. The artist traveled to Alger over the course of three years to collect pictures. He experienced a unique social interaction and creative process: he gave the picture to the person whose picture he took, yet he kept the negative of the photo. He then created a book and an exhibition with those negatives.
