The Investigation: Karim

#20 - The control photograph here is Lucien again with his "John Malkovich" hair style with Karim in the red and white striped pajama. Karim is my cousin Georges's son. Lots of Georges' on both sides of the family. It's also my middle name, and my half-brother's both first and middle name.

#19 - Karim in the red and white striped pajamas with Jamil in their bedroom in Ashqout.


On the next page I will take on 8 unidentified rolls that I shot in one day while on a long excursion with my paternal cousin Georges and his son Karim, who appears on five of the rolls and where it is pretty obvious it's the same day, and hence the same year. Memory also plays an important part.

In the seven rolls there is one single clue that confirms the year as 1991. Furthermore, Karim's hair and facial features do differ ever so slightly from year to year.
