Abstract

Aware of the limitations of Edward Said’s Orientalism theorised almost half a century ago, this chapter strived to analyse some of the late 19th and early 20th century photographic representations of the women of North Africa and to compare them with the contemporary photographs taken of women in the Middle East. This comparison between the images of the female inhabitants of the Saidian ‘Orient’ aimed at highlighting the visual articulations of information and control.
