About this product
- DescriptionIn 1972, Gilles Mora and his wife Francoise left France to teach the French language in public schools in Louisiana. At the time, he knew thing about photography. Fascinated by the Deep South, however, Mora soon started a photographic project on its culture. Greatly influenced by artists such as Walker Evans, Ben Shahn, Eudora Welty, and Clarence John Laughlin; playing music with some of the major figures of the rockabilly scene, including Carl Perkins; and infused with the sensuality of the South, Mora produced a unique body of pictures over more than twenty years. Rarely exhibited or published, the images in Antebellum present a kind of travelogue, a photographic recording of Mora's personal mythologies, which evoke the disappearing world of the Deep South.
- Author BiographyGilles Mora has been the editor in chief of the magazine Les Cahiers de la Photographie, an editor with Editions du Seuil in Paris, and the artistic director of the Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie in Arles. Currently he is the director of the city of Montpellier's Pavillon Populaire. He was awarded the Nadar Prize for The Last Photographic Heroes: American Photographers of the Sixties and Seventies.
