Denis Darzacq – Photographer : A Frozen Moment In Freefall

At Paris-Photo, we walked the lanes aware and ready.
With the criteria for showing at the event this year, leaning towards a more modern approach, the senses were primed for a new vision.
Denis Darzacq delivered, in showing us a normal place, Hyper Markets (as opposed to Super markets in the US), with everyday shoppers place into surreal positions.
Like a freefall frozen in time, his images lull you in, to shake your reality base. And then wonder how it happened.
The Series entitled “Hyper”, won last years World Press Photo Awards in the art and entertainment category. First realized as a series shot around Paris in outdoor, simple, industrial locations, the new group, with added color and a visual touchpoint in “normality”, seems to have found a huge audience.

He has discussed the images as representative of the youth of today free falling

If you’d like to see a genesis of the making of these images in video, plus a unique video of him discussing his work

He is represented by www.agencevu.com.

You can hear him discussing his work on this video. It’ll help if you speak French.

You know, sometimes you don’t need any other explanation other than the photographs. Enjoy
