Antoine d'Agata: Self Portraits 1987-2017 (Signed Copy)

The book "SELF-PORTRAITS - 1987-2017" by Antoine d’Agata reveals a journey of the man-photographer from the origins of his practice to the present day, and presents to us the monumental iconography of a body of work that has been developing slowly from a visual diary begun in Mexico in the 80s to the moving image and the writings of a few premeditated life scripts.
In what way is it possible to understand this living archive, this artistic, human and political gesture, this assumed, conscience and deliberate deviation, the last device for resistance in a world lived with rage and pain?
The book aims to bring to light some truths —fragile— and to deliver, without illusions, the experience of a life. The accumulation of images, the infinite repetition, underpins the views of a man that constantly expands the limits of his own existence and allows us to grasp the feelings, necessity, and urgency of an imperative search, of which there a hardly any traces, fragments, small pieces drawn from reality. Just some “surviving images”.
