Nicolas Genta

Young talent photographer of the 2010 Planche (s) Contact festival

"The casinos are ambiguous places, where the strange fascination of a thousand sparkling lights is exerted. From the star wars to ancient Rome, these photographs constitute so many facets of a space where the backdoors are masked by frescoes , the cherubs dance to the sound of the slot machines and the palm-shaped colonnades flash to make you lose your mind. The Deauville casino is there, hidden between the ruins of the great lost civilizations. "
