The grids of portraits in Salloum and Alis’ installation intrigue me, as they represent encounters – however fleeting – that are not unlike my encounter with Mohammed. Encounters with strangers who disarm you. Strangers whose life stories haunt you. The portraits in Salloum and Alis’ installation strike me as pictures of hope. They exhibit a strength of character, a tenacity, even an optimism, that is quite different from the impression of Afghanistan generated by mainstream media.
