Photographers, where are they ?


From 2016-05-04 to 2016-05-22

Festival Image Singulières - Sète (FRANCE)
Exhibition by Christian Lutz

Though the year 2016 is still in its earlier months, numerous social movements have already emerged and seem here to last. Strikes against the labour reform, opposition to the state of emergency, #NuitDebout movement, denunciation of police brutality...not only are they times of exasperation and...

 

A bent toothbrush, a pipe, a trashbag, an engagement ring, perfume bottles... Jean-Robert Dantou puts into perspective representations of madness in the history of photography, and propose a series of objects and texts presented as windows into the daily lives of thoses described more as than as...

 
“In this project, no doubt one of the most personal in which I have been involved to date, I set out to address unreservedly the difficult and fascinating relationship – which for me is essential – between image and word, photography and literature, always on the basis of the importance that...
