"Algeria was mine, but not totally. Something I felt there, something too violent, too hard, too raw, made complete belonging impossible" - Bruno Boudjelal

Product Description

French photographer Bruno Boudjelal explores the intricate links between personal and national identity and cultural memory in this evocative photographic essay about present-day Algeria. Boudjelal was born in Montreuil, on the outskirts of Paris of Algerian ancestry. His work focuses on his relationship with his father, and through that, with Algeria as a whole.

For many years he was unable to travel freely in Algeria. Then in 2003, as restrictions eased, he travelled across the entire country and felt a familiarity and intimacy with places he had never before visited. This work, made during many journeys across the country between 2009 and 2013, attempts to explain and understand these feelings
