L'action photographique

One of the major figures of body art in France, Michel Journiac developed a subversive work questioning the society of his time. This monograph gathers the entire photographic work of a pioneering artist who raised issues that still resonate today.

Using poetry, installation, performance and sculpture, it is through photography that Michel Journiac kept for the most part traces of his actions playing with parody and transvestism. Organized in series, his "photographic actions" are divided in three parts within the book: Pièges where he appears as a cross-dresser, Rituels and Contrats, as well as Icônes du temps présent.
