Portraits of Algerian Women by Marc Garanger

The photographer Marc Garanger is exhibiting portraits of Algerian women he took between 1960 and 2004 in Kabylia.  The exhibition is taking place in Paris at the Centre Culturel Algerien.  Here are a few photos taken from this gallery, for an interview he gave to TV5 Monde (in French).

In this interview, he recounts he was one of the photographers that the French army employed to take photos of women forced to unveil (1960) during the ceremonies of forced unveiling organised by the French.
