From the Holy Land to Palestine (De La Terre Sainte A La Palestine) by Danielle Autha, Felix Bonfils and Serge Negre
The originality of this book lies in the confrontation between the historical images of nineteenth-century photographer Felix Bonfils and the contemporary images of Serge Negre. In this process of combining images, which Negre calls "chrono-photo-confusion," the romantic and aesthetic attraction of historic places that are undeniable witnesses of the past give way to his own more modern approach that focuses on the inhabitants who make up the country today. The comparison of the photographs from the two periods and the way they are intimately linked highlight the historic, social and political continuity of Palestine.
