Mohamed Bourouissa - Photography Azul


Mohamed Bourouissa has published exclusively with Homaar 5 photographs that mark the beginning of his research for the Peripheral series that made him known. In 2009, during a residency in Rio de Janeiro, the artist surrounded himself with acquaintances and friends to stage such as history paintings, genre scenes or landscapes the daily life in the wonderful city.

Azul mixes historical painting and genre scenes to evoke everyday life in the favelas. These teenagers, who have abandoned their naivety to prefer the harshness of man, who see their life governed by the rules of the community and assert their virility by the sound of their motorbike, see their daily life punctuated by boredom and squabbles while keeping watch. In this photograph, the complementarity of the colours gives another aura to this youth who only believes in itself.
