Containing striking images of people living on the fringes of society, Anticorps is a challenging and captivating collection from one of the most renowned photographers working today. Antoine D'Agata has traveled the world's darkest corners collecting images of prostitutes, addicts, war-torn communities, and the homeless. A nomad himself, D'Agata tackles subjects often left untouched, unnoticed, or ignored. Frequently compared to his mentors Nan Goldin and Larry Clark, D'Agata's work, for all it's grim and occasionally terrifying realism, bears the hallmarks of timeless photographs. This volume features images from a number of D'Agata's series, interspersed with short texts as well as essays and commentary. Published to coincide with an important exhibition at La Bal Gallery in Paris, where it quickly went out of print, Anticorps was awarded the 2013 Arles Book Prize, and is certain to become one of the most sought after photography books of the year.
Antoine D'Agata was born in Marseille, France and studied photography in New York at the International Center for Photography. After interning at Magnum Photos he joined the agency in 2004. He has been exhibited widely and received a number of awards for both his photographs and books.
