D’Agata’s photographs are not the result of a search for images but the consequence of his arduous and radical quest. As such, the themes captured with his camera are broad, although always motivated by the quest of human essence of the outcasts. The works featured for this exhibition focus on the human flesh as the core, the starting point, the essential base of life, love, ecstasy and suffering.

Antoine d’Agata is a French photographer born in Marseille in 1961, where he spent his teenage years in violent combats for political militancy. Fascinated by the marginality, he had shared total experiences with whores, junkies, thugs. He left France in 1983 to travel the world. He went first to Central America, to distant revolutions, tin the search of self-destruction energy.

Since years he dedicates himself to teach through many workshops worldwide. He is also deeply involved in the Angkor Photo Festival which he helped to start and where he offers photography workshops to children and young adults at no charge for the past 10 years.
