The book Recovered 10 on 10 - Adams on Garanger contains ten silk-screened photographs by Dennis Adams, which represent districts on French soil where Harkis have been moved after the Algerian war. In addition, each book includes one unique portrait from the series Femmes algériennes by Mark Garanger. This very portrait, re-mounted on the bottom of each book, is 20 cm higher than the block-book, so that only the upper part of the face is shown, while woman eyes are watching the viewer.
