Hazy scenes of life in various parts of Algeria photographed by Franco-Algerian photographer Bruno Boudjelal over a ten-year period, starting in 1993. Published in his 2009 book Disquiet Days / Jours intranquilles, the series consists of a collection of a highly personal visual perspective of Boudjelal’s journey across a country he had become unfamiliar with in some ways.

Through this series of intimate complex interactions, these images speak profoundly to Boudjelal’s position as an insider-outsider in Algeria, which can often be seen through the distance illustrated between the eye of Boudjelal’s inquisitive lens and the subjects in his photographs.
