PHOTO OF THE DAY

An exclusive dialogue from the respective corpus of two photographers, Datazone and Dark Tourism. The travel industry, ever more hungry for novelty, pushes the boundaries of the anecdotal offering new fictional spaces. Philippe Chancel explores the hidden face of Dubai and North Korea, those ultra-regulated windows, while Ambrose Tézenas explores places of desolation or catastrophe that fascinate the public eye to the edge of voyeurism, such as the Visit Chernobyl Tour in Ukraine or the Kennedy Assassination Tour in Dallas. Faced with this morbid attraction, what of our consciences?
Last days to visit the exhibition.
