The story behind the photo from Vincent's words:


Portrait of a touareg, under his refugee tent, at the border between Mali and Burkina Faso.

When I met this man I was really impressed by the beauty of his outfit. He was saying he was waiting with his wife here in this camp, in the middle of nowhere, for the peace to come back in North of Mali. His eyes seemed wise. Like most of the men in this camp he was making touareg artcraft. One of his neighbor even explained me he was going to London very often to sell his art before the conflict forced them to flee. He showed me his passeport stamps like he had to prove anything. When you never saw or lived such a situation, it is complicated to imagine that you can run a normal and good life, and then one day have to flee leaving behind every single thing you own. Without knowing if you will ever find anything back home.

After drinking some tea, this man offered me his passport leather cover he made himself. I will never know if it was a technique to sell me more of his jewelry, or if it was just a generous gift, after spending a nice time talking. But now, every time I travel I think about him.
