Denis Darzacq didn’t always dream about being a professional photographer, but rather fell into it when, a then popular French pop group, Les Rita Mitsouko asked him to take images of them. He began his career as a press photographer in France, which provided him with hyper exposure to contemporary society. He considers this time his teaching time, and used it to explore his social commentary and interest in the margins of society through his produced images. In 2007, Darzacq won the 1st prize for Arts & Entertainment at the World Press Photo Awards for his gravity defying series. La Chute and has since put out work that continuously captures cultural consciousness in a surreal-like state.
BULLETT talked to Denis about his latest work, a collaboration with Anna Luneman that explores mixed media by melding his images with ceramic work.
