RAPHAËL DALLAPORTA »DOMESTIC SLAVERY« – selected by RÉMI COIGNET

»Although Raphaël Dallaporta describes himself as a documentary photographer, his principal subject matter is the invisible. DOMESTIC SLAVERY (a slippery theme, photographically) is a cold succession of clinically shot façades (housing the scenes of the title’s crimes), offset by a facing-page text relaying each victim’s torment. An unbound folder of 24 pages, Domestic Slavery boasts a bold design: the reader must remove each page in order to make the connection between the text and the corresponding image. Domestic Slavery challenges the customary book format, revealing these tragedies while raising questions about the link be tween appearance and reality.«
