Galerie 127 in Marrakech presents the exhibition “Misr L’Egypte de Denis Dailleux”, iconic images and unpublished images, 30 years of a love journey … which gives birth to a book with the same title, published by Editions Le Bec en l’Air, prefaced by Christian Lacroix with a text by Christian Caujolle.
“… This is a real loving geography of Cairo, which is part of a photographic wandering begun in black and white then, somewhat by chance, continued in a color treatment whose finesse of palette is characteristic of an aesthetic approach without missteps. “I took black and white and color films. One day, while I was making the portrait of the child with the potato, I finished my black and white film and I asked Sherif to give me another one. He told me that there was only color left and I made the best of things. I took the picture and it was a success, and the color imposed itself as evidence.” – Christian Caujolle.
