edition of 12 73,5 x 60 cm pigment print Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper 308gsm hand signed & numbered
La Chute makes the connection between photojournalism and Denis Darzacq’s artistic search crystal-clear. Inspired by a press report on hip-hop dancers, the series captures young dancers during leaps and jumps, with no recourse to any digital manipulation. Their bodies impose their en-ergy, their lightness and their inventiveness on the dense geometry of the city space they invade. Darzacq borrows street culture’s very forms of expression and uses them as a tool for freedom. In a leap of faith the daredevil dancers free themselves from social weightiness. La Chute won 1st prize in the Arts and Entertainment category of the World Press Photo 2007 awards.
