Raphaël Dallaporta

© Photo by Jérome Sother

Through his photographs, Raphaël Dallaporta (born in 1980) tackles a large array of human concerns, going beyond the purely documentary dimension. He seeks to question the empathy generated by societal issues, and plays with the varied aspects of the photographic image. He worked in close collaboration with bomb disposal experts (Antipersonnel), jurists (Esclavage domestique), forensic scientists (Fragile) and archaeologists (Ruins). All of his projects have been collected in a monograph, Antipersonnel included, published by Les Éditions Xavier Barral in 2010.

His work is included in the collections of the Élysée Museum in Lausanne, the Fond National d’Art Contemporain (FNAC) in Paris, the Maison Européenne de la Photographie (MEP) in Paris, the Nicéphore Niépce Museum in Chalon-sur-Saône or the New York Public Library. Among his solo exhibitions we can cite Raphaël Dallaporta, Observations, travelling since 2011, and Antipersonnel, a Martin Parr pick at the Rencontres d’Arles in 2004.

In 2014, Raphaël Dallaporta was a pensionnaire at the French Academy in Rome – Villa Medici. He was also the winner of the ICP Infinity Award 2010 in New York and the Paul Huf Award 2011 of the Foam Museum in Amsterdam. He lives and works in Paris.
