Denis Dailleux – Juliette

by Le Bec en l'air

35,00

In Denis Dailleux’s childhood village, in Anjou, lived a woman of character, a true character of a novel: Juliette, his great-aunt, who died in 2017 at the age of 100. Between the photographer and his model, between the old woman and the young man, a unique complicity has established for more than 15 years a serious and funny game, a mixture of seduction, harshness and malice.

Like a model, Juliette accepts Denis’ stagings which take advantage of the farm’s decor, play with objects and plants. Over the years, the photographs become more daring and reveal an unexpected personality that seems to blossom under the lens.

Through Juliette’s portraits, magnificent in their accuracy, the reality of a modest and precarious rural world appears, with its social codes and values, where harshness sometimes prevails over wisdom. With her strong character and her refusal to accept what others say, Juliette is a resilient person, driven by her intuition and a sensitive intelligence. From then on, the act of photographing becomes a tribute to a modest but vibrantly human existence.

Le Bec en l'air

Créé en 1999, Le Bec en l’air est un éditeur indépendant installé à Marseille. Un point commun réunit la plupart du temps ses publications : le dialogue entre l’image et le texte, entre photographie et récit, à travers une mise en page étudiée, des photographies et des textes d’auteurs.

Au fil des ans, le catalogue s’enrichit d’écritures photographiques variées qui trouvent néanmoins une cohérence éditoriale : la photographie comme outil de questionnement du monde contemporain, qu’il s’agisse de préoccupations documentaires, esthétiques ou intimistes.
Photographes reconnus ou émergents s’y croisent, sans exclusion de style ou de sensibilité artistique : Jane Evelyn Atwood, Bruno Boudjelal, Jean-Christian Bourcart, Denis Brihat, Denis Dailleux, Arko Datto, Cédric Gerbehaye, Steeve Iuncker, Yohanne Lamoulère, Frédéric Lecloux, Shinji Nagabe, Payram, Marc Riboud, Adrien Selbert, Frédéric Stucin …
