luc delahaye
from November, 4 2005 to January, 15 2006
Luc Delahaye has taken photographs for four years from places newspapers report on everyday : war zones, areas of conflicts or power struggles, places where History is made up, at the very moment the events happen. His direct approach reminds the one of a reporter. The frontal nature of his photographs, the neutrality, the detachment and the richness in details that emerge from them relate his work to documentary-style photography. Their size and narrative power connect them to older artistic practices, like Gustaves Courbet’s work, or more recently Jeff Wall’s.
