2. NAN GOLDIN / The ballad of my life > 17 au 25 avril 2010 / Italy

Photographe de la Galerie Yvon Lambert. Paris, France

9 photos de Nan Goldin

> Biographie / Biography

Goldin was born in 1953 Washington, D.C., and grew up in an upper-middle-class Jewish family in the Boston, Massachusetts suburb of Lexington. She enrolled at the Satya Community School in Lincoln and start photography in 1968 at fifteen years old. Her first solo show, held in Boston in 1973, was based on her photographic journeys among the city's gay and transsexual communities, to which she had been introduced by her friend David Armstrong. Goldin graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston/Tufts University in 1977/1978, where she had worked mostly with Cibachrome prints.

Following graduation, Goldin moved to New York City. She began documenting the post-punk new-wave music scene, along with the city's vibrant, post-Stonewall gay subculture of the late 1970s until 1986s. She was drawn especially to the Bowery's hard-drug subculture; these photographs form her famous work (The Ballad of Sexual Dependency). These snapshot aesthetic images depict drug use, violent, aggressive couples and autobiographical moments. Most of her Ballad subjects were dead by the 1990s, lost either to drug overdose or AIDS; this tally included close friends and often-photographed subjects Greer Lankton and Cookie Mueller. The main themes of these early pictures are love, gender, domesticity, and sexuality; these frames are usually shot with available light. She has affectionately documented women looking in mirrors, girls in bathrooms and barrooms, drag queens, sexual acts, and the culture of obsession and dependency. The images are viewed like a private journal made public

Since 1995 she has included a wide array of subject matter: collaborative book projects with famed Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki; New York City skylines; uncanny landscapes her lover, Siobhan; and babies, parenthood and family life. Goldin's work is most often presented in the form of a slideshow; her most famous being a 45 minutes show in which 800 pictures are displayed.

In 2003, The New York Times nodded to the work's impact, explaining Goldin had "forged a genre, with photography as influential as any in the last twenty years." In addition to Ballad, she combined her Bowery pictures in two other series: "I'll Be Your Mirror" (from a song on The Velvet Underground's The Velvet Underground & Nico album) and "All By Myself."

Goldin lives in New York and Paris (one reason the French Pompidou Centre mounted a major retrospective of her work in 2002). Her hand was injured in a fall in 2002, and she currently retains less ability to turn it than in the past. In 2006, her exhibition, Chasing a Ghost, opened in New York. It was the first installation by her to include moving pictures, a fully narrative score, and voiceover, and included the disturbing three-screen slide and video presentation Sisters, Saints, & Sybils. The work involved her sister Barbara's suicide and how she coped through a numerous amount of images and narratives. Her works are developing more and more into cinemaesque features, exemplifying her graviation towards working with films.

3. ANDERS PETERSEN / A possible route of escape > 11 au 19 juillet 2009 / Paris

Photographe membre de l'agence VU

9 photos de Anders Petersen

> Biographie / Biography

Anders Petersen est né en 1944 à Stockholm où il vit encore aujourd'hui. Au début des années 60 à 18 ans, un séjour à Hambourg lui ouvre une voie qui fera de la photographie son moyen d'expression. En 1966, il entre à la mythique Ecole de Photographie de Christer Strömholm, puis fonde en 1967 avec Kenneth Gustavsson un groupe qui produit dans les années 70, des reportages socialement engagés et critiques sur la société. Aujourd’hui, Anders Petersen est, à son tour, directeur d’atelier à l’école de photographie et de cinéma de Göteborg. Considéré comme l’héritier du “grand old man” de la photographie suédoise, il est sollicité dans le monde entier. Il expose régulièrement et presque chaque année depuis 1967. Il est présent dans des collections en Suède, Allemagne, Suisse, Danemark, France et aux Etats Unis.

Born in 1944 at Stockholm, Anders Petersen has been involved in Swedish photography since the late 60's. He is one of its central figures, and no one else has made a stronger impact on a younger generation. Yet, he hardly gives the impression of being a father figure. If anything, he is the eternal boy, travelling through an alien wonderland with its secret love encounters and bewildering adult conflicts. His pictures of the world out there somehow seem to be taken in a state of permanent amazement. His pictures are intimate, and yet they disclose no all too unpleasant details concerning the people involved. One of the secrets in Anders Petersen's photography is his indication of a possible route of escape, a kind of alternative movement through the city, which could lead to a different story.

> Prix / Awards

Il a reçu de nombreux prix et récomprenses depuis les années 70. Il a été élu "Photographe de l'année" aux Rencontres internationales de la photographie d'Arles en 2003.

He has received numerous grants and rewards since the seventies. In 2003 Anders Petersen was elected the “Photographer of the Year” by the International Photofestival in Arles.

4. DENIS DAILLEUX / le portrait et son atmosphère > 14 au 22 juillet 2006 / Paris

Photographe de l'agence VU, représenté par la galerie Camera Obscura

9 photos de Denis Dailleux

Sa passion pour les gens, pour les autres, l’a naturellement amené à développer le portrait comme mode de figuration privilégié de ceux dont il avait l’envie, le désir d’approcher davantage ce qu’ils étaient. Naturellement et avec la délicatesse qui le caractérise il va installer dans le carré de son appareil des anonymes des quartiers populaires du Caire ou encore Catherine Deneuve et autre personnalités, avec cette même discrétion qui attend que l’autre lui donne ce qu’il espère, sans le revendiquer, en espérant que cela adviendra.

Alors, patiemment, il a construit un portrait inédit de la capitale de cette Egypte avec laquelle il entretient une relation amoureuse, voire passionnelle, pour mêler, entre des noirs et blancs au classicisme exemplaire et des couleurs à la subtilité rare, une alternative absolue à tous les clichés, culturels et touristiques, qui encombrent nos esprits.

Si l’Egypte reste, à l’heure actuelle, son grand oeuvre, le travail de portraits en noir et blanc qu’il a réalisé avec sa grand-tante, s’inscrira dans un questionnement de la notion même de portrait à la fin du XXe siècle. A sa manière discrète, Denis Dailleux est un photographe classique auquel on a terriblement envie de dire qu’on le remercie de son regard généreux et hors temps.

Il entre en 2004 chez Magnum.

Antoine d'Agata vit et travaille à Paris.

" La nuit, le sexe, l'errance, la nécessité de photographier, non comme un acte réfléchi, mais comme une simple mise à plat d'expériences ordinaires ou extrêmes. Une pratique photographique indissociable d'une certaine façon d'appréhender l'existence, où le risque, le désir, l'inconscience et le hasard restent les éléments essentiels. Aucune attitude morale, aucun jugement, simplement l'éthique de l'affirmation qu'il faut, pour explorer certains univers, les partager jusqu'au bout, sans précaution aucune. Un passage à l'acte photographique, aux limites de la disparition, de la jouissance et de la mort.  Antoine d'Agata, 2004

Antoine D'Agata is based in Paris.

The night, the sex, the wandering... and the need to photograph it all, not so much the perceived act but more like a simple exposure to common and even extreme experiences... It is an inseparable part of photographic practice, in a certain sense, to grasp at existence or risk, desire, the unconsciousness and chance, all of which continue to be essential elements. No moral posturing, no judgement, simply the principle of affirmation, necessary to explore certain universes, to go deep inside, without any care. A ride into photography to the vanishing point of orgasm and death. " Antoine d'Agata, 2004

6. BRUCE GILDEN / In the face, in the street > 11 au 19 avril 2009 / Italy

Photographe membre de l'agence Magnum

9 photos de Bruce Gilden

> Biographie / Biography

Bruce Gilden was born in in 1946 Brooklyn, N.Y. and attended Penn State University where he became bored studying sociology. In 1968, after seeing the Antonioni film Blow Up, he bought his first camera. Though he took some night classes at the School of Visual Arts in New York he is basically self-taught in photography. When he was a child Gilden spent hours gazing through his bedroom window studying the activity on the street below. His fascination for street life continued and led him to his first long-term personal projects photographing in Coney Island and then to the Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

Gilden, who has done extended projects on New York, Haiti, France, Ireland, India and Japan, started exhibiting as early as 1971 and has since shown his work widely in museums and galleries all over the world. The strong dynamic forms and graphic quality of his images and his in-the-face theatrical style distinguish Gilden's original vision.

> Prix et bourses

Gilden has received numerous grants and awards for his work including three National Endowments for the Arts fellowships (1980, 1984 and 1992), a Villa Medicis Hors les Murs (1995), New York State Foundation for the Arts Grant (1979, 1992 and 2000), the European Award for Photography (1996) and a Japan Foundation Fellowship (1999).
