Marc Lagrange

Kinshasa, 1957
Filled with longing and sensuality, Marc Lagrange’s photographs celebrate fantasies and desire—placing beauty and dreams at the center of his world. Lagrange was born in Kinshasa, Congo, in 1957. His career path led him from engineering to photography, and his reactivity from fashion to art. Privileging analog over digital, the Antwerp-based Belgian artist searches for intimacy and emotion as opposed to artificial effects. His giant Polaroids—which have been exhibited worldwide—are a powerful example of his craft as well as his attention to detail: he can display the texture of skin, highlight natural curves and make his models stand out.

Since 2015, a selection of Lagrange’s iconic works is featured at the TEFAF art fair in Maastricht (NL), ever year. Senza Parole, which partly took place in the Italian town of Pietrasanta, coupled with the Handelsbeurs project in Antwerp, Belgium and a Fellini inspired shoot at the baroque loft of Paolo Calia in Paris, these three series are part of this new book. Marc Lagrange keeps looking for singular subjects and unexpected stories, placing humanity at the core of his approach. Since his sudden death in a car accident in Tenerife in 2015, his artworks continue to be recognized worldwide.
