This newspaper commemorates the 50th anniversary of the death of Frantz Fanon, and considers his continuing relevance to the lives of Algerians on the eve of the anniversary of Independence.

Photographer Bruno Boudjelal maps the contours of Fanon’s life through a series of fleeting images, shadowy figures and ghostly apparitions. These are presented alongside Salima Ghezali’s essay An Appointment with Frantz Fanon, in English and French.

About the Artist
French-Algerian photographer, member of AgenceVU’, he lives and works between Paris and Africa. Born in Montreuil in 1961, Bruno Boudjelal practices photography as a way of life that constantly questioned his own identity and confronts us to ours. In 1993, he left France to follow the footsteps of his paternal origins in Algeria. This discovery was the starting point of 10 years of very personal exploration, which lead him between travel diary and testimony, to go from black and white to colors, and to accept the subjectivity of his point of view. He then extended the borders of his travel and adventure bigger, to other territories – remote or not – and testified of pan Africanism.
