The eighteen landscapes featured in this book were conceived in October 2020 during a photography workshop led by Alexandre Guirkinger and arranged by the art centre and publisher Le Point du Jour in partnership with the non-profit organisation Itinérance. Six migrants having recently settled in Cherbourg and receiving assistance from Itinérance took part in the workshop. Ahmed Agadaguib, Fahim Ahmed, Mamadou Baïlo Bah, Amine Djouadi, Abdullakh Ushurov and Abdulfahim Zahiri first identified the places having made a distinct impression on them from their arrival in the city, that they visit every day, that they especially like, or that typify France for them. Following an initial scouting phase, the landscapes were produced using an 8-by-10-inch view camera in dialogue with Alexandre Guirkinger. All of the participants printed contact sheets for their photographs and then wrote captions for them in their native languages.
