    Mahmoud Alkurd – Phenomenon in Gaza

    Through conceptual photographs, Mahmoud Alkurd shares his own vision of the catastrophe suffered by Palestinians in the Gaza Strip during Israel's 2014 Protective Edge attack. Writer Mo'men Ashour's highly realistic narratives, drawn from real events, bring the consistency of traumatic experience to these poetic images. Today, the geopolitical and humanitarian situation has not changed.

    Véronique de Viguerie – Irak inch’Allah

    After the removal of Saddam Hussein in 2003 and the international state lie about Iraq's possession of nuclear weapons, the country can no longer mourn its dead. The Sunnis have been marginalised, the Shiites have taken power and the threat of Daesh has emerged. Véronique de Viguerie and Manon Querouil-Bruneel have investigated Iraq over the past few years and report on its political, humanitarian and social disaster. The Shiites band together to fight Daesh, the Sunnis complain about the Shiites. All these people live side by side, try to live together, you even meet mixed couples of different faiths. But there is still resentment. Some think, others say that the roots of evil are still very present, favouring the gestation of another monster, much worse than Daesh.

    Laurent Elie Badessi – Age of innocence

    Their names are Rylee, Donovan, Gracie, Catalyan, Lily, Michael... they are between 3 and 17 years old and live in Texas, Idaho, Louisiana, New York... These children and teenagers posed in front of photographer Laurent Elie Badessi's camera with a gun in their hands and all answered clearly to this very simple question: "What do you like about guns? While the aim of this photographic work is to explore the obvious attraction of guns for a large proportion of Americans, this book also invites us to face this social, political and moral reality.

    Véronique de Viguerie – Yémen, la guerre qu’on nous cache

    In addition to the almost daily bombardments by the Saudi-led Coalition, which sometimes target civilians, the Yemenis in the north, who have been under siege for years, are suffering from a shortage of water, oil, food and medicine. Every ten minutes, a child dies, mostly of a perfectly benign disease. Child soldiers are used as cannon fodder on the front lines. Oil, humanitarian aid and medicines are overtaxed by the corrupt in power. Reporters Véronique de Viguerie and Manon Querouil-Bruneel went to Yemen to investigate this war, which they reveal to us. This work won the prestigious Visa pour l'Image award, as well as the Visa d'Or humanitaire from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). This edition was supported by Amnesty International.

    Jean Paul Olive – Athènes et ses îles

    Athens and its islands, we could also say Athens and its daughters. We can see the Ariadne's thread between them, and the thousand-year-old connection with the Capital, the mother country. All Greeks, including those who have gone far away, have a favourite island. To meet them, I just had to let myself be carried by the waves and let the years go by. Happy who like Ulysses...
  • Mohammed Dib - Tlemcen ou les lieux de l'écriture
    Mohammed Dib - Tlemcen ou les lieux de l'écriture

    Mohammed Dib – Tlemcen ou les lieux de l’écriture

    This book is the story of a childhood lost forever that is told in the present tense; it is a Dib-child who fixes the moments felt and captures the moments that have fled. The buried desire of Dib as a child to have a writing space, not to become a writer, but only to feel that he exists, that he is free. The living conditions of the time (1946), so harsh, offered only one alternative to the "native" children: either early work or - as was his case - school. To revisit this magnificent guide to childhood in the 1940s is to take a journey into Mohammed Dib's childhood and to rediscover the ancient codes underlying a body of work that never ceases to amaze us. This book is a re-edition and a new version of the project Tlemcen ou les lieux de l'écriture as it was conceived in 1993 on the initiative of the French Cultural Centre of Tlemcen, then published in 1994 by La Revue Noire in Paris. It contains unpublished images of the photographer.

    Abed Abidat – Algeroid

    The photos you will discover in this book are the result of three years of travels in the city of Algiers. The photographer decided to use the polaroid photographic technique. It is a singular approach to offer his photograph to the person portrayed, in order to preserve the negative, as a backdrop, altered, immemorial, a revelation of the realization of this work.

    Arnaud du Boistesselin – Le Caire – Portraits

    It is 2002. I live in downtown Cairo. Every day I go out to understand the city. To show and make people feel what I am experiencing, I am going to photograph this street, people and animals, houses and traffic. I decide to take a small digital camera, to hide it in my hand and to take the photographs without aiming, the subject does not know he is being photographed, so he cannot compose his character. The absence of aiming and the latency of the release mean that I do not give my image an instant sophistication.

    Natela Grigalashvili – La terre des Doukhobors

    The Doukhobors appeared three centuries ago in Russia as a pacifist community that rejected the Church's liturgy and opposed all civil government. Their history was thus one of persecution, deprivation of freedom and deportation. Despite the difficult conditions imposed on them, they remained faithful to their convictions: exiled from Crimea to Georgia, they founded several villages in the Javakheti region. But to escape reprisals, a large part of the community chose to leave for Canada at the beginning of the 20th century, supported by Tolstoy and his supporters.

    Arnaud du Boistesselin – L’esprit de l’escalier

    Arnaud du Boistesselin has lived in Cairo for fifteen years. His photographs are devoted to the richness and diversity of building interiors. They highlight a heritage that is much less visible than the façades. He transposes into his medium the plastic universe that permeates the soul and daily life of the inhabitants of downtown Cairo, something of a past history that continues to weave strong links with the present. Because taking the path of the spiral designed by this or that staircase every day, perhaps several times a day, is also physically inscribing in one's own body the memory of the design conceived for us by an architect. On the pages, Jean-François Galletout's mini-novellas give a very Cairo-like humanity.
  • Raymond Depardon, Kamel Daoud - Son œil dans ma main
    Raymond Depardon, Kamel Daoud - Son œil dans ma main

    Raymond Depardon, Kamel Daoud – Son œil dans ma main

    Algeria 1961 Raymond Depardon, at the age of nineteen, was sent by the Delmas agency to report on a country in turmoil - the last stirrings of the Algerian war of independence. The young photographer captures his images at high speed; he collects about a hundred of them, all of them striking. He readily says that his awareness and sensitivity were decisively forged during this journey. Raymond Depardon exhumed these photos (some of which were published in "Un aller pour Alger", Points, 2010), and in a very strong and generous gesture, offered them to Éditions Barzakh and then to Images Plurielles, two publishers of numerous authors with an international reputation. The idea was born that Raymond Depardon should make another trip in 2019 to complete the 1961 photos with a "postscript". This he did from 15 to 24 September 2019. He photographed Algiers, still in black and white, in its abundant contemporaneity. He also spent five days in Oran, where he met up with the writer Kamel Daoud for long strolls through the city. These proved so powerful that it was decided to keep about 30 of them. Kamel Daoud, delighted by the project, wrote several texts. They are almost disjointed from the photos, they will be meditations or wild reveries. If we take up the distinction elaborated by Barthes, dear to Raymond Depardon: far from being "anchor-texts", they will be "relay-texts", autonomous in relation to the latter, without any apparent link with it, like "vision" texts.
