Pouillon in Algeria

The origin of this issue was the power of the images that Lausanne photographer Leo Fabrizio, with years of research, made of Fernand Pouillon’s work in Algeria: the dignity and diversity of the architecture, the melancholy of its decay, the masterly photographs in the warm light of the Mediterranean deeply impressed us when, around a year ago, we encountered the book Fernand Pouillon et l’Algérie. Bâtir à hauteur d’hommes, which Leo Fabrizio published together with the photographer Daphné Bengoa. For the current issue he opened his archiv to us. As a result, his large stock of images becomes accessible here for the first time.
