This project is about culture, identity and religion. For about 3 months I followed a young man around who is about the same age as me. It is an Islamic, Moroccan man, with a wife and child.
I barely know a thing about Maroccan culture. Most of my information is obtained by documentaries and the news. Therefore all I think I know about his culture is second hand information, I’m unconfortable with that. I want to find out things for myself.
Brahim fascinates me and many others because of his open attitude and sense of humor. We connect on many levels, but there is always a level of uneasiness on my part. For Brahim is something new to me, something culturally unknown. I don't think I'm such a mystery to him, but we’ll never know I guess.
Sorry for the upcoming language switch. The website is international, but the project is written in Dutch. Maybe in the future I will make an English version as well.
