Born in Paris in 1961, Denis Darzacq started his career like many French photographers in press photography. With a sharp eye for contemporary society, he approaches the human body through his photographic investigations, since he believes that the body cannot be isolated from the societal problems and context in which it interacts.

Exhibiting his artwork since 1994, his photographs are nowadays represented in various public and private collections, in France as well as abroad, recently earning him the Prix Niépce in 2012.
