ICE – Antoine d’Agata
Published by Images en Manoeuvres Editions – 2012 – France 15,5 x 23 cm – 304 pages in colours – Hard cover Covering Antoine d’Agata’s work for the last 5 years, the book combines pictures and texts in a disturbing testimony, showing the commitment of a photographer documenting drug-generated fictions… Until he loses control. In December 2007, Antoine d’Agata arrives in Phnom Penh and falls in love with Ka, a Vietnamese prostitute-a dealer also. In January 2008, they begin to share a small and dirty flat downtown. Here starts the oblivion. The addiction to methamphetamines takes over the photographic work and the frontiers between fiction and reality start to melt. This is where ICE comes from. The horror that permeates the pages is not so much the “journey to the end of the night” of a photographer as it is the violent filth and hypocrisy of a system that grinds the flesh of those who were refused speech. Diary style format with some texts written by gifted writer Rafael Garido (all text in French), with some of his most powerful and graphic images to date.
