Out of stock

Very rare self-published book on the Paris of black people in the early 80s. It is the work of a Cameroonian who arrived in Paris in 1974 to study refrigeration engineering. Abandoning his studies, Silatsa devoted himself entirely to photography and published his first work: Parinoir. It is of course a question of restoring the daily life of blacks in the French capital and the imagination that surrounds it. We find there the professional and material situations, the children, the artists, the precariousness, the symbolic links with the countries of origin, the diversity… a magnificent book interspersed with texts and press articles. Of very great rarity.
