Salih Basheer is a Sudanese photographer. He was only three years old when he lost both his parents – 22 days apart. This book collects the few memories he has of them, in words, pictures, drawings from when he was a child… the sequence mixes disjointed fragments of a lost childhood, in an attempt to recompose that trauma. An intense and touching book.

I have few memories of my parents. Once I was with my mother in the courtyard of our house and I was startled by the sound of a low-flying plane spraying insecticide. I tried to hide in her arms . I also remember once I was with my father as he took us in his white Fiat to the mosque for Tarawih prayers. It was during Ramadan and I went with my mother to the women’s section on the second floor to enjoy the prayer from above.
