Overview participating exhibitions
While the Arab Spring dominated the media and conversations on the street, in the Moroccan city of Tangier Lola Reboud was photographing young people who gathered in parks, gardens and on the outskirts of the city during Ramadan. From these various places she created one utopian Garden of Eden. All the encounters she recorded were as transitory as the season in which they took place, and given the political situation, paradoxical in their gentleness. Reboud derived the title of the series from the tables that give the positions of astronomical objects in the sky. These tables sugest constant movements, just like the lives of these young people change constantly.
Lola Reboud (France, 1982) studied photography at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts, the National School of Decorative Art and the Sorbonne, all in Paris. She did an internship at Magnum, where she assisted Elliott Erwitt and Alec Soth. Presently she is working with various media and non-governmental organizations, and focusing on her own long-term projects.
