In the lineage of photographers like Robert Frank or Eugene Richards, Antoine D’Agata has brought back stunning photographs from many travels, to Mexico and other scorched earth areas in Central America. In black and white and violently frontal, their brutal framing and composition stand in for the travels imprinted on the mind. In countries of misery and whorehouses, he burns under the sad suns of prostitutes who warm the hearts of the damned of the earth, seedy cantinas, phantoms of the night and of death.
