"I waited five years for this woman. She had escaped me one evening in December 1950 in Marrakech, for lack of light and especiallyŗ a camera, and I raged against this lost photograph. I found her again in Kuwait, the first picture on my first roll, the afternoon of my arrival. What luck! Only by sleight of hand did I succeed in hiding and saving this film that the male Kuwaitis, pious and courteous but determined, wanted to confiscate in the name of the precepts of the Koran. Despite the amusing rolling stone context, this picture says more about ancient statuary than about the anecdote." (Jean-Philippe Charbonnier)
