Vincent Desailly: The Trap

Edited by Nadine Barth. Text by Gucci Mane.

Trap culture: the hip-hop of the American South, documented in scenes of everyday Atlanta by Vincent Desailly

Known for its ominous sound and gritty lyrics, “Trap” is the American South’s brand of hip-hop, particularly associated with the city of Atlanta. “Trap” is also slang for the place where drug deals are made—as well as, of course, a snare. These multiple meanings collide in the latest photographic project from the French documentary, portrait and fashion photographer Vincent Desailly (born 1989), who sets out to capture the world behind the lyrics in Atlanta.

Desailly’s pictures document the life and the atmosphere surrounding this music. His haunting portraits show dealers, musicians or simply residents of the city, as well as guns, crime scenes and tableaux of everyday life. The photographs possess an enchanting beauty and an elegance in their narration.

Vincent Desailly's photographs document everyday scenes in Atlanta's trap culture

Vincent Desailly's photographs document everyday scenes in Atlanta's trap culture

Featured image is reproduced from The Trap, French photographer Vincent Desailly's new monograph documenting the culture around Atlanta's homegrown hip-hop sub-genre, trap. Desailly doesn't glamorize or editorialize. His photographs capture musicians, strip clubs, dealers, guns, drugs, home interiors, outdoor spaces and ordinary people just hanging out. "When I think about trap I think about something raw," "Trap God" Gucci Mane is quoted in the book's introduction. "Something that hasn't been diluted. Something with no polish on it. Music that sounds as grimy as the world that it came out of." Includes vellum pages printed with maps of the Atlanta neighborhoods where Desailly made the work. continue to blog
