Once again, the movements of #WhileBlack and Black Lives Matter have been invoked by the swift succession of recent incidents reminding us that the pandemic is not solely from without.
Born in Marseille in 1988, Anouk Deville fell in love with photography at the age of 15 and has been in love with it ever since. For ten years she has been exploring intimacy, both hers and that of those around her, in family photographs, sex scenes, moments snatched from daily life, bodies ravaged by time or by self-harm… All fusing to produce a body of work marked with a violent tenderness. Her images bring us face to face with a disturbing proximity and show us that all true splendor comes from darkness. Her work has been exhibited in Paris, Marseille, Arles, Las Palmas, Landskrona, Los Angeles and Phnom Penh.
