In 2011, after 23 years of living apart from each other, two best friends, a French photographer, Fabrice Nadjari and Cedric Houin reconnected and embarked on a journey into the unknown. Being fascinated with
One of their goals was to make locals feel comfortable so they came up with an idea of snapping Polaroid photographs not realizing that many of them never before saw themselves on a photograph. After they noticed the overwhelming reactions, they started to snap photos of the people holding their own photo to show them the concept of time and mixing past with present. They both agreed that the adventure was truly humbling but the one thing that made me emotional was what Fabrice said:
"There was something extremely precious in the way they were holding the image, in the way they wanted to get it as soon as it got out of the camera. It was both the gift and the interaction."
P.P.S: Remember this sweet project?
