Samuel Gratacap / LE BAL & Filigranes / hardcover, 2015

“In Tunisia, 5 km away from Libya’s frontier, Choucha camp became a transit area for several hundred thousand Sub-Saharan refugees escaping Libyan civil war. Since 2011 when first appeared the camp in the Tunisian desert, I followed refugees in their everyday life. My photographs and video works reflect the space-time specificities of this living place shaped by wait. Wait due to the different stages of asylum applications for refugees, combined with the tension of those suspended destinies in a same temporary site that became perennial by circumstances, to finally disappear”
