Antoine d’Agata: Lilith
The work of Magnum photographer Antoine d’Agata (born 1961) explores themes of addiction, sex, prostitution and other taboo subject matters. This volume presents the photographer’s nightmarish, unflinching Lilith series, in which d’Agata portrays his relations with a Cambodian woman who is addicted to methamphetamines and has worked as a prostitute since she was 12 years old. “Most of my photographic strategies are aimed at reaching the highest levels of pleasure or unconsciousness and, in this sense, sex and drugs are highly enjoyable working methods,” d’Agata has said. “Part of my recent work could be easily described as some chaotic and biased sociology of ecstasy.”
Antoine d’Agata: Lilith is the first title in La Fábrica’s new 64P series of photobooks which aim to explore the creative possibilities of a condensed photo-essay format akin to the short story.
