The other week I passed by the French Embassy and was surprised to find out that the photographs of the French photographer Denis Darzacq were still not taken down. If you can recall, I was able to photograph one portion of the wall that showed photographs of locals with their helmets on.

Good thing is that I photographed the other part of the wall that showed another series of his photographs:

Denis Darzacq (France)
He is one of the best-known photographers of his generation and has exhibited all around the world. His series “La chute” (“The Fall”) made him an artist recognized by the public, after other professionals and collectors had appreciated his talent. In love with color and movement, he always carefully organizes his striking images in order to produce meaning and encourage thougths. This year, two of his series will be spectacularly dis-played on the outside wall of the French Embassy. The series “Hyper” depicts young men and girls, dancers and athletes, floating in front of his lens in the colorful departments of the new temples of consumer society. Suspended in air, to the point where this would seem impossible without manipulation, these floating figures confront accumulations of products such as rolls of carpet. – Photo Phnom Penh Festival 2011 Programme
