Kader Attia: The Landing Strip

Introduction by Ralph Rugoff. Text by Tarek El-Ariss.

Spread from 'Kader Attia: The Landing Strip.'

The Landing Strip is a photographic series by French-Algerian artist Kader Attia (born 1970) that documents the lives of a group of Algerian transgender sex workers living in Paris in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Focusing on the group's shared intimacy, and taken over a period of roughly two years, Attia sought to capture and present the real lives of those in the community.

The title of the series is the name give by the women to the boulevard on which they work. This long straight road, which separates the centre of Paris from its suburbs, resembles an airport runway.

Featuring more than 140 illustrations that trace the events from day into night, and an essay by Tarek El-Ariss, Associate Professor and Chair of Middle Eastern Studies at Dartmouth University, this book is an honest and personal insight into the lives and relationships of a group on the periphery of society.

Kader Attia represents the unrepresented in 'Landing Strip'

Kader Attia represents the unrepresented in 'Landing Strip'

Published to accompany a landmark larger survey at London’s Hayward Gallery, which just closed, this new book of photographs from French-Algerian artist and activist Kader Attia celebrates Paris’ Algerian transgender community of the late 1990s. Throughout 140 intimate and enlightening photographs, Attia’s lens avoids objectification in favor of an honest portrayal of his subjects’ lives. Documenting moments of sadness, passion and chaos as he follows their narratives from home to street to club, he represents the unrepresented with a remarkable sensitivity that is also reflected in the essays. As noted by essayist Tarek El-Ariss, “These photographs go beyond the colonial past and its indelible traces. In these images, tears of abandonment and betrayal mix with tears of joy and too much laughter. Tears shed over Arcadia Voladkar’s ‘last man,’ who drowned off the coast of Beirut, or over the stories about how clumsy and dull the last man was—these draw new paths that the make-up sometimes covers, and sometimes accentuates.” continue to blog
