Biography

Denis Darzacq started his career as a photo-journalist. Seemingly obsessed by the haunting question of togetherness, Darzacq patiently constructs a saga of modern urban realities and, even more so, the problematic between crowds’, groups’, or isolated individuals’ perceptions of the social topography of the city. Guided by his curiosity, he surveys cities and their peripheries, encountering realms or "tribes" that he knew little or nothing about yet to which he is connected in a personal and close way. Perceiving the poetic and singular dimensions of these spaces, Darzacq then tries to translate his observations into works of art. His practice pays particular attention to the different ways in which bodies are figured in the urban space. Renouncing a reliance on the conventions of representation, Denis Darzacq invents a specific staging for each of his “encounters,” a particular photographic view that implicitly reveals what mere reportage often fails to capture: codes, dreams, things unsaid that affirm the presence of each "one" in the crowd.
