Raymond Depardon by Raymond Depardon
Book DescriptionRaymond Depardon arrived in New York in the winter of 1980. He was visiting a friend who had just taken up a job in the city and to kill time he strolled around the streets with his Leica. He decided to take pictures without ever looking through the camera's viewfinder, working incognito in the nooks and crannies of New York. He amassed two or three rolls a day but at the time was thoroughly disappointed with the results. Depardon never mentioned the work to anyone and only decided to unveil these blind pictures twenty-seven years later. He was surprised to discover that most of his subjects were aware that they were being photographed.Their knowing glances towards the camera lens imbued with a pretence of indifference immortalises the very spirit and charm of this, the ultimate city. Raymond Depardon, born in 1942 in Villefranche-sur-Saone, is a film-maker, photographer and journalist. Co-founder of the agency Gamma in 1967, he travelled the world as a photojournalist and began making documentaries in the Direct Cinema tradition. In 1978 he joined Magnum Photos. In 1991 he was awarded the Grand Prix National de la Photographie and his work "Delits Flagrants" won the Cesar for best documentary film in 1995.He has made eighteen feature films and published about forty books. He lives in Paris. Paul Virilio, born in Paris in 1932, is a Senior Professor at the Ecole Speciale dArchitecture of Paris and was formerly Director and Head of the same institution between 1968 and 1998. After his first philosophical essays, he became the director of the collection "Espace Critique" by editions Galilee in 1973. He was awarded the Grand Prix National de la Critique in 1987. In 1990, he became the course director at the College International de Philosophie when Jacques Derrida was the principal. In 1992, he became a member of the Haut Comite pour le logement des defavorises, presided by Louis Besson. As an urban designer and an essayist, specialising in strategic questions about new technology, Virilio, has published widely in France and abroad. He has been a supporter of the association Non-Violence XXI, ever since its creation in 2001. He lives in La Rochelle.
