Synopsis

Capturing a fascination with human nature and its various faces, this collection showcases the work of French photographer Denis Félix. Complementing the artist's success in fashion and advertising, the featured images focus on his favorite domain: the portrait. Beginning with the striking photos of the farmer's hands that belonged to his grandfather, the study reveals his series of images portraying rural France. Félix's first two exhibitions are also featured, which were dedicated to the people he met in Mali—a rare civilization who represented an intact traditional culture. Recollecting the subject's subsequent international exhibitions, the images also journey through his encounters in Morocco, Mauritius, and Martinmas. This edition is written in both English and French.
