Marco Barbon's Tangier series traces five years of the photographer's absorption in a city, between reality and fiction. As often with Marco Barbon, the notion of border – physical as well as imaginary – reappears: in the nooks and intersections, doubt creeps in, characterizing the shifts specific to the photographer’s images. We no longer know if we are imagining, if we are dreaming or if we are flying. If the city of Tangier has turned into a mirage, since there is no longer, as in Burroughs' Interzone, "a line of separation between the real world and the world of myth and symbol". The Interzone reveals to us Marco Barbon's vision of Tangier, once his gaze has been washed from the first fantasies inherent in discovery, but still prey to the imagination.
