Michael von Graffenried travelled to Algeria in 1991 and followed the first free elections that led to the victory of the Islamic Salvation Front in favour of the creation of an Islamic state. Army intervention interrupted the electoral process and a civil war ensued that lasted about ten years, with terrorist attacks, murders of intellectuals and journalists and violent repression. From 1991 to 2002, Michael von Graffenried made some 30 trips to Algeria and chose the panoramic format that was to become his signature, with a camera pointed at belly height allowing him to photograph his subjects without them noticing. He will be one of the few Western photographers to document terrorism, its repression and the daily life of Algerians in this civil war situation.
