The first solo exhibition of Gilles Saussier took place in 1997 in Shakhari Bazar, the main Hindu neighborhood of the old town of Dhaka, Bangladesh. The exhibition came to a progressive end as the photographs were distributed to the inhabitants of the area. Their names and the addresses were recorded in a register. On a return trip in 2001, then in 2005-2006, the photographer visited both those photographed and their pictures, documented these images scattered throughout their homes and took new portraits. Thus began an experimental documentary process composed of several layers of superimposed and intertwining portraits.
