Mohamed Bourouissa Captures Paris’ Banlieues in ‘Périphérique’

Published by Loose Joints.

Mohamed Bourouissa is an Algerian-born French photographer best known for capturing dramatized scenes that give a place in French history to individuals usually neglected and overlooked in contemporary society. The Deutsche Börse award-winner has released a dense chronicle of his work in a new book, titled Périphérique.

Published by Loose Joints, the book documents the period between 2005-2008 during a time where unprecedented riots and violence occured in the French banlieues (suburbs) regarding social inequality. The retrospective look provides two new texts by Taous R. Dahmani and Clément Chéroux, which complement Bourouissa’s iconic imagery, including 60 pages of unseen photographs.

Bourouissa employs staging to recreate stereotypical representations of life on the margins — a tactic that both engages and parodies the way the media depicts those who live in the banlieues. A signed copy of Périphérique is available to purchase for £40.00 GBP / $55 USD via Loose Joints and Actual Source.

Elsewhere, Matt Willey and Dan Crowe launch ‘INQUE’ Magazine.
