Africans in Algiers
On their long way to Europe, they often stop in Maghreb countries, trying to earn some cash for the passage further north. Without papers, they are oficially not allowed to work, but sometimes get hired as porters, or for other, hardest physical jobs. Many of them, as Moses from Nigeria, are high school or even university graduates, with no chances for career and decent life in their corrupt or sometimes war-torn homelands. They struggle on, and for those lucky ones, who finally make it trough endless deserts, Arab racism, risky seas and get to Europe, journey may be even 5 years long. Those portrayed here are somewhere in the middle, on a stop called city of Algiers. /
