A Biography of Disappearance by Lahouari Addi
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Between 10,000-20,000 people disappeared in Algeria in the decade following the cancellation of the general election of 1992. On opening this book, page upon page of faces introduce the reader to this national tragedy. Using the testimony of the families of some of those who have disappeared, Omar D's photographs present the places where events occurred, their relationship to the surrounding urban and rural landscapes and the lives of those who have been affected. A striking and forceful body of work, compiled during a single winter as a commission by Autograph ABP, his images tell the story of a practice that has become widespread throughout the world. Omar D is known for his intimate portraits of a way of life fast disappearing in Algeria, recently exhibited as part of Africa Remix in London, Dusseldorf, Paris and Tokyo and Snap Judgments at ICP, New York.
