Presented for the first time in public in Paris, this exhibition is the result of an initiatory journey in Japan, conducted in 1991 and inspired by the reading of an essay on Japanese aesthetics - "The Praise of Shadow" by Junichiro Tanizaki - which profoundly affected the photographer. In his book, Tanizaki defends an aesthetic of the penumbra, in response to Western aesthetics where excessive light prevails. During his trip to Japan, Deschamps followed this thread and turned his gaze on a culture of imprinted details and the refinements of the art of staging beauty assume paramount importance. This series of photographs reveals the real "obsession" of Pierre-Olivier Deschamps for the lighting, and more specifically for the exalted dark side of his pictures.
