Description

The photographic documents by Pierre Bourdieu are above all the result of scientific work, and in this sense they must be viewed in a constructive context together with the texts that he wrote at the same time, and thus have a specific historical and thematic framework. The first task in our work, then, was to scrutinise the photographic documentations for contexts that Pierre Bourdieu analyses in his writings. We attempted to read Pierre Bourdieu’s archive and all of the circumstances of this collection of negatives and prints, comments and the collection of sketches contained in the “fiches d’Algerie” (collection of notes from Algeria), in the context of Bourdieu’s studies. Pierre Bourdieu himself had already begun to tentatively combine pictures and texts, and we were able to follow this model.

Bourdieu’s seminal field research in Algeria (1958–1961), now complemented for the first time by its photographic component, in which ethnology, anthropology and sociology are inseparably linked and which Bourdieu referred to as his “earliest and most up-to-date work”, offers an insight into the status nascendi of Bourdieu’s sociology in all its elementary forms and contents. Above and beyond this historical dimension of his work, and indeed far exceeding it, Bourdieu’s photography also retains its character as impressive socio-historical visual material. Reading Bourdieu’s photographs alternately with his writings from this period, they provide a wealth of material illustrating the habitus and ethos of pre-modern man and his inherent dignity.
