Presentation by Atelier EXB:

" The publication Side Walk takes the reader into an unprecedented journey through Frank Horvat's emblematic series he produced in New York between 1982 and 1986 combining iconic photographs and unpublished images found in his archives with the complicity of the photographer and his daughter. A personal series he developed with great freedom outside of his assignments that will turn out to be decisive in his transition from fashion photography to more personal work. As a urban stroll, the book is conceived upon visual associations that have emerged over the years. It shows the contemporaneity of this body of work and the extraordinary talent of Horvat as a colourist.

The photographer documents here a period in his lifetime in the American city where we can already identify his favorite themes: people, the city's absurdity and its contradictory beauty. A selection of excerpts from his journal take the reader in the intimacy of his New York experience unveiling as well his interrogations as a street photographer. While a fictional correspondence with Horvat specially written for the book by filmmaker Amos Gitai, gives a new light on this multifaceted series. "

Sadly, Frank Horvat passed away a mere few days after the production of this book, but he was able to have it in his hands before leaving our world...

Atkins, Nicéphore

Who is this photographer? A short explanation. The name of this virtual photographer has been generated - wink-wink - from the first name of the author of the oldest photograph to have reached our times, Nicéphore Niépce, and the last name of the creator of the first book to ever use photography, Anna Atkins (book "British Algae"). The process of adding books to our website can be time demanding as we need to create a page for each photographer and a page for each publisher (in both French and English) before creating the new book, and connecting it to its author and publisher. Consequently, it can happen, in super busy times, that we will create a new book and use "Nicéphore Atkins" as the photographer attached to this book. Of course, this is not out of lack of respect for the artists, and we ask for your forgiveness, for THEIR forgiveness, that we are sometimes taking this easy route. We will limit the use of this pseudonym as much as possible, and we will try to create the missing pages as quickly as possible, in order to re-attribute the books to their righteous creators. Thank you for your understanding. © Portrait of artist Stromae by Benjamin Brolet during the shooting of a video for the album "Racine carrée".

Presentation by Editions Xavier Barral: "“The slow ruin of a man with no ties, a refugee from a long expedition, which repeats itself from room to room.” Antoine d’Agata does not stage the world he photographs, he is merely the silent witness, the assiduous spectator. He plunges himself into it headlong, and carries us along with him in these...
