    Antibodies : Antoine D'Agata - [edited by Antoine D'Agata and Xavier Barral ; translated from the French by David H. Pickering]
    Call Number: TR 657 .A33 2014
    Publication Date: Prestel, 2014
    This monumental collection of d’Agata’s controversial work is a cult classic and companion to one of the most talked-about photography exhibitions of the past decade, available now for the first time in English.

    Containing striking images of people living on the fringes of society, Antibodies is a challenging and captivating collection from one of the most renowned photographers working today. Antoine d’Agata has traveled the world’s darkest corners collecting images of prostitutes, addicts, war-torn communities, and the homeless. A nomad himself, d’Agata tackles subjects often left untouched, unnoticed, or ignored.

    Frequently compared to his mentors Nan Goldin and Larry Clark, d’Agata’s work, for all its grim and occasionally terrifying realism, bears the hallmarks of timeless photographs. This volume features images from a number of d’Agata’s series, interspersed with short texts as well as essays and commentary. Antibodies was awarded the 2013 Arles Book Prize, and is certain to become one of the most sought-after photography books of the year. (22 Jul)
