Al Karama

Argel, Argelia

Algiers’ old town, Casbah, was declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO in 1992, but it is nowadays very damaged.

It is called “La Blanche” (the white one), due to the original color in which the mediterranean port painted years ago. It seemed very poetic to us, the idea of bringing back the white color, but preserving some of the actual old and wasted color, we decided to write inspiring messages that could make the walls and people shine again.
