Born 1961 in Paris
Lives and works in Paris.
He has acted as unit photographer for film directors Chantal Ackerman and Jacques Rivette, made video clips for a hundred or so musicians, from Rita Mitsouko to Etienne Daho, and worked for years as a photojournalist for the French newspaper Libération. Informed by this intense professional activity and pictorial influences as diverse as Pop Art, Italian Mannerist painting and Japanese mangas, Denis Darzacq combines social documentary photography and artistic mise en scène in his exuberant snapshots on the theme of bodily movement in urban areas.
