On the occasion of the Cambodia Landmines Conference, some photosof Raphaël Dallaporta are exhibited on the Sisowath Quay.
With a slow and reflective rhythm, at all times demanding, never falling into the spectacular, and always insisting on the need to produce meaning, Raphael Dallaporta casts an objective eye on the contemporary world, using all the resources of his exceptional technical mastery. Two "still lives," in which the photographer has highlighted antipersonnel mines in his studio as though they were pieces of jewelry, and views of the sadness of Christmas trees thrown away in the street after the holidays, summarize a critical and questioning point of view. The exhibition of these photos is surely provoking reactions, especially in the particular context of Cambodia.
