Eberhardt wasn’t an anthropologist or an Orientalist, she wasn’t trying on a new life for a few years before heading back to Europe with a journal stuffed full of “exotic” tales of life in North Africa.

There was no other life to go back to." #history
To be a freak who liked you
To feel like a freak like you
- a freak who even looked a little like you

in the great hub of this mothership over these Spring and Summer months..
And how familiar and stamped you are into ALL of our our collective DNA
I'm just plain proud" ~Tilda Swinton
