TUNISIA – Journey toward Sahara 2014

This reportage is based on a journey that starts from Tunis toward South to the gates of Sahara desert. I went through TOZEUR, DOUZ, KSAR GHILANE, the great salt lake of CHOTT EL JERID (about 5000 km²), DEBBABCHA, NOUEIL, ZAAFRANE, NEFZAOUA, OFRA, the Berber village of CHENINI, still inhabited, TATAOUINE, KSAR OULED SOLTANE, KSAR ZARA , the troglodyte homes of MATMATA, GABES, TOUJANE. While traveling there was an exponential increase in the cultural gap between the citizens of Tunis, just emerged from the recent spring (2010-11) and where a slow process of democratization is ongoing, and the populations of the villages close Sahara or nomads who cross it during their migrations. These populations don’t seem to be affected by political and social changes. They continue to live according to their way of life handed down from one generation to another.
