Antoine d'Agata is a French photographer and film director. His work deals with topics that are often considered taboo, such as addiction, sex, personal obsessions, darkness, and prostitution. D'Agata is a full member of Magnum Photos.

In 2013, the exhibition “Anticorps” (Antibodies) at the BAL gallery in Paris, as well as  a book of the same title published by Xavier Barral celebrated this stage of his career. We would like to give this book a chance to exist. That is the very reason why we need you to show your own commitment and participation. One of the core qualities of this book lies about fifty texts written by the artist himself, between 1995 and 2015. These texts illustrate Antoine d’Agata’s reflections on, and assessment of his photographic practice. Many have had the opportunity to encounter Antoine d’Agata’s photographic work, but rare are those who have been lucky enough to indulge in his writings. :: Disorders :: Voies Off Publishing :: Book size: 24 cm x 32 cm :: Hard cover :: 128 black & white and colors pages. :: 96 pages of photographs :: 50 pages of text :: Designed by Antoine d’Agata in collaboration with Voies Off “Only an art that is noxious, subversive, asocial, atheist, erotic, and immoral, an antidote to the infectious spectacle that neutralizes the spirits and distils death, only such an art can be valid.”   Antoine d’Agata Antoine d’Agata is a member of the prestigious Magnum agency. He is represented by Les filles du calvaire gallery, in Paris.
