Denis Darzacq

French photographer Denis Darzacq was born and raised in Paris, a city in which he still lives and works today. He graduated from the ENSAD (French National School for Decorative Arts) in 1986 and started his photographic career following the French rock scene.

In 1994 he began a series exploring the nocturnal life of Parisians titled “Only Heaven”, which he exhibited at various photo festivals. In 1999 the French Ministry of Culture commissioned him a body of work on French youth. The interaction between man and urban space and, more precisely, the suburbs have been a driving force in his recent work.

Darzacq won the 2007 World Press Photo prize in the category “Arts & Entertainment” for his series “La chute”.

He has published a number of books including “Act (2011), "Hyper” (2009),“La Chute” (2007), “Bobigny centre ville” (2006, co-author Marie Desplechin), “Le ciel étoilé au-dessus de ma tête” (2004), “Ensembles 1997/2000” (2001).

Exhibited extensively throughout France and internationally, his work is also held in both public and private collections including the Pompidou Center, the FNAC (French National Contemporary Art Fund), the Nicéphore Niépce Museum and the Cité Nationale de l'Histoire de l'Immigration.

He is represented by Laurence Miller Gallery in New York, U.S.A and by Galerie VU’ in Paris, France.
