L’échappée

Grégory Dargent is a French musician and photographer born in 1977 in Argenteuil. He graduated from the Conservatoire de Strasbourg and carried out an international career as musician (electric guitar and oud) and composer. His creations led him to travel all over the world, from the Berlin Philharmonic to the Itabuna church in Brazil, from the Oud Festival in Doha to the Poisson Rouge in New York, from the Jazz Festival in Cairo to the Auditorium of the Warsaw radio.
Passionate about photography, he discovered it almost by accident on the day in which he turned 37. Anchored to the temporality of analogue photography, attached to the abstraction of black-and-white,
and showing a great subjectivity, he published his first photographic work with Editions Saturne in 2018: Livre H.
 
Deauville reminds him of the break he took a few years before with a young woman. They were fleeing their past life and a narrow city. A personal work.
 
I don’t know Deauville. Well, I actually do. A few years ago, while I was divorcing, I met a girl, tormented as I was. We wanted to leave our narrow city and our near past lives. I took a map of France, closed my eyes and randomly put my index on the paper: Deauville.
