Affinités Des Sols | Soil Affinities explores the connections of (post) colonial history and the movement of plants for agriculture, from Aubervilliers, a northern suburb of Paris, to formerly French West Africa (Mali and Senegal). This publication and Uriel Orlow’s artistic project of the same name retrace the lines and networks of earthly connections between plants and humans through images, maps, texts, and interviews conducted in France, Senegal, and Mali over the span of two years.

With texts by Abdoulaye Barry, Alexandra Baudelot, Bernadette Lizet, Jean-Michel Roy, Bouba Touré, Françoise Vergès, Serge Volper, Anne-Elizabeth Wolf.
