“(…) there has to be a photograph in the newspaper. Or an image which emerges from reading an article. The journalistic way of relating facts, which
is to say incompletely, without affect or commentary, is the best stimulus for the imagination: it lets me see situations. Nothing which happens during these first moments can help me lateron, except by setting something off, but that’s still where everything begins.” In this way Luc Delahaye was born in 1962. This book, his first with Steidl, is published at the occasion of the exhibition of his most recent works at the Nathalie Obadia Gallery in Paris.
