The exhibits here are a fascinating view into Europeans' early 20th c gaze onto North Africa. While the colonialism is impossible to escape, the photos are also lovely and evocative. And the historical detail provided is clear and not overwhelming. Highly recommend.

I'm into photography, so I was quite keen to check out this museum. We were on a tight schedule, so I only had 30 minutes to view the exhibition. Expectations were high, and I wasn't disappointed. I was in awe of some of the photos,...More
