  • It was difficult for him to get a visa and room to sleep in Algeria
  • The project took about 5 years to complete
  • He took about 1,000 photos a day while in Algeria
  •  x100 is very quiet so it didn’t disturb the scene
  • The X100 lets Romain Laurendeau photograph the intimate because it is small, light, and silent, so it is forgotten
