La banlieue...

Found out about this bloke a while back. His names Mohammed Bourouissa (french as you might of guessed), Basically he stages moments of tension and the power relationships which exist within the ghetto-like suburbs of Paris (la banlieue). The series is called 'Périphérique', which from what i can gather means 'the outskirts' or something like that. Heres a few of my favorite images.

From what I've read online, his works now getting exhibited alongside major french artists in galleries around europe. You can see more of the series here.
