WHERE WERE YOU ON JANUARY 14?

Episode 2: The View from Above

January 14, 2011. In this second episode of the series, photographer Hamideddine Bouali's destiny changes right after celebrating his 50th birthday. Hamideddine says it himself, he was not an activist, and "like most Tunisians" he was afraid. Before, he captured photos of Sidi Bou Saïd or the Medina, but on this Friday, January 14, he found the courage to immortalize this historic day "at close range." From rooftops and balconies, he documents unprecedented scenes, following the procession of Helmi, a young man killed the day before, to the front steps of the Ministry of Interior. The photographer tells the story behind the images stored in Tunisia's collective memory.
