The succession of political regimes in post-1848 France was experienced in similar ways in post-conquest Algeria. The political, social and cultural ideologies that emerged during this period were mirrored in the North African départements, and therefore it is perhaps not surprising that connected events happened simultaneously in the métropole and Algeria. It was not only through its common events and political principles that the Algerian territories became French, but undoubtedly also as a result of the emergence of new cultural media and cultural political attitudes. Taking and viewing photographs were aligned with the new French paradigm of the modern Nation, its identity construction, and interconnection with Algeria. Up to the beginning of World War I there were two moments that connected the photographic visual imagery of Algeria as part of the creation of lieux de mémoire within the Second Empire and Third Republic regimes; the 1850s with its ‘cataloguing’ of the newly established French Algeria and the 1880s-1900s with its portraiture of ‘consumptions and ideologies’ of a French Republican Algeria.
