In the streets of Algiers
I’ve been posting some pictures of the streets of Algiers few months ago, showing the beauty of Alger la blanche. Beauty is always a question of point of view. Here in this serie you can see the algerian capital from a different angle or under another light.
This duality is really interesting because it says a lot about Algeria. There’s always two levels of reading. Algeria is big country full of contrastes, layers and levels of life,
As I’ve said it, I grew up there and now I live in Europe, when people asks me about Algeria I always answer Algeria can be eveything and it’s opposite. It’s not just grey, It’s dark and light and all the shades that you can have from it.
You may say those pictures are not showing Algeria under her best light, that I made it more dramatic under this high contrastes and grainny pictures but I would say Algeria is Algeria.
Magnifiques photos comme toujours.
Merci Fabienne !
Bravo pour ces photos magnifiques. Je découvre Alger depuis quelques semaines, vous savez capter son ambiance.
