Berlin - Tunis 

Najet Adouani, Tunisian poet and journalist, sent me to places in Tunisia, where she lived and used to write her poems. Today, she lives in exile in Berlin and can’t visit these places anymore. I brought her the polaroids, and she wrote memories and parts of her poems on them.

It’s color was pink.
