This is the second exhibition of portraiture at Westwood Gallery NYC by the Algerian photographer and focuses on Berber women, circa 1950s to 1970s from his hometown of Aïn Beïda (near the Aurès Mountains), Algeria. This exhibition is one of a series of rediscovered artist estates, as part of the gallery core program.
