Vacant exposure – Luc Delahaye

He is one of the foremost talents in photography, yet unknown to many. Luc Delahaye is a French photographer, a man without a canvas whose work relies on the necessity of word of mouth.

One of few photographers positioning themselves away from the modernisation of the craft – no socials, no website – just agency. His work strikes a chord through framing and a minimalism gently whispering, cutting through emotion. It is the isolation of his work often captured with a sparse human presence that strikes most.

The absence of life intensely impacts the viewer, demonstrating a better understanding of the subject he documents than one would expect.

Formerly of Magnum photos he left in the mid 00’s and began photographing by commission for publications including Newsweek. Although description and acclaim have reached the man for several years, his work speaks for itself.
