Photography has pride of place at the Galerie Azzou’ART in Algiers. For the past few days, visitors have had the opportunity to discover the exhibition of Nadjib Rahmani, whose excellent photos belong to the true tradition of classical photography. The photographer chose as his subject a living fossil: the barb horse of North Africa. These 25 black-and-white photographs take the viewer back to the early days of photography. No matter their level of experience, visitors can appreciate the photographer’s approach. Beyond simply taking pictures of these horses, Rahmani seeks to explore the traditions and signification of Fantasia.
