Presence in Absence

You can order the book.

‘Presence in Absence’ is a reality that many migrants and their families are facing in both Europe and Africa. Families are being separated for many years and as a result of undocumented status often not capable to travel back. People are holding on to memories, tangible in the form of photos; carried with them or present in the privacy and intimacy of their (bed-)rooms. Photos of their family as well as of spiritual leaders, like from the Mouridism brotherhood of Serigne Touba.
