Les derniers paradis

Sido Lansari - Les derniers paradis
Artist's book.
Sido Lansari's Les derniers paradis (Last Paradises) is the fictional portrait of Sami, whose story the author tells "almost true". In Casablanca, he dreams only of dances and Egyptian stars in the barber shop where he works. Until the day he meets Daniel, a lover who introduces him to a revolutionary homosexual Paris. By mixing archive images and film photographs, Sido Lansari draws an intimate portrait of a young man, from childhood to exile, where he discovers he comes from the "last homosexual paradises", as they are called in the West.
