« Confronted with a global ruling power that generates an inflation of stereotypical images, and with the multiplication of these images by cultural industries, facing a generalized obscenity, being / living has become the sole meaningful challenge; and the sole possible master piece can only be the perpetration of senseless acts. »

Antoine d’Agata

 

For its first edition in Arles (1996), Voies Off Festival presented the work of Antoine d'Agata, an unknown photographer based in Marseille. From the first meeting, we discovered the artist’s talent and deep dedication to his work, a dedication that he has been entertaining through a complicated relationship with the world and photography.  That series of images, "Mala noche", photographs of a trip across the United States and Mexico, was quickly recognized as a major work, awarded the Voies Off Prize, while supported by famous French photo-editor and curator, Christian Caujolle, also the founder and director of the VU photo-agency (and gallery).

During the twenty years that elapsed between 1995 and 2015, Antoine d’Agata asserted his style, producing a succession of series in his very atypical way. A good deal of these works start from a documentary approach, with a definite “concerned” and militant slant: human migrations, wars, prostitution…

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Voies Off Festival, we are publishing "Disorders", Antoine d'Agata’s latest book. It highlights 20 years of his photographic work. A beautiful way to celebrate our parallels roads, and share this event with you.
