Support Antoine d’Agata ‘Disorders’ – A book, two parallel roads and 20 years of photography

France –  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 theVoies 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).

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.
