Denis Darzacq
The Fall

Friday, October 17–Thursday, November 20, 2008

Part of I Kiffe NY: French Urban Cultures Festival
Produced by the Cultural Service of the French Embassy
Co-presented by FIAF

Photographer Denis Darzacq’s images presented in The Fall become a metaphor for youth in precarious stability, playing a game of equilibrium and provocation. Featuring the bodies of young hip-hop, capoeira and contemporary dancers in weightless positions, The Fall opposes the elasticity of these bodies to the raw material of architecture. An additional 29 short videos of young suburbanites will propel the audience into the environment of youth culture.

FIAF invites you to uncover this rising luminary in photography, who recently received first prize in Arts and Entertainment from World Press Photo.
