Pierre Bourdieu’s Photographs of Algeria

In today’s post, we are re-posting some of the photographs from Picturing Algeria (now available in paper). The extraordinary photographs were taken during the years of 1957-1960 when Bourdieu was working there as a university lecturer. Taken during the Algerian War, Bourdieu’s photography offer a sympathetic and insightful portrait of a country and a people, who were ostensibly the enemies of France.

For more on the book, you can read an interview with Pierre Bourdieu about his time in Algeria or read Craig Calhoun’s foreword to Picturing Algeria.

    Tragedies of the jews in beautiful Algeria were due to the cremieux act. Before the French invaded the so beautiful Algeria, jews and moslims lived without problems.

    [...] Bourdieu, çok verimli bir fotoğrafçıydı da. Kolombiya Üniversitesi Press, yakın tarihli bir blog yazısında Bourdieu’nun Cezayir’de bulunduğu süreç içerisinde çekmiş olduğu şaşırtıcı [...]
