The breakaway

Grégory Dargent is a French musician and photographer born in 1977 in Argenteuil. A graduate of the Strasbourg Conservatory, he leads an international career as a musician (electric guitar and oud) and composer. His creations have taken him around the world, from the Berlin Philharmonic to a small square in the Itabuna Church in Brazil, from the Doha Oud Festival to the Red Fish in New York, from the Cairo Jazz Festival to the Warsaw Radio Auditorium.
Passionate about photography late, which he discovers as if by accident on his 37th birthday, anchored in the temporality of film, attached to the abstraction of black and
white and advocating the greatest subjectivity, he created in 2018, the book H at Editions Saturne, his first photographic work.
 
In Deauville, he remembers the breakaway that he experienced a few years ago with a young woman, fleeing from a past life and a too narrow city. Intimate work.
 
I don't know Deauville. Finally Yes. A few years ago, in the midst of separation, I met "J", who was also in torment. Wanting to flee our too narrow city and our past lives still far too close, I took a map of France, I closed my eyes and I put my index finger at random on the paper: Deauville.
