From Magnum: "This book is less about showing a transgressive world of sex, drugs, and errancy, than it is about a transgression of the boundary that usually separates the photographer from the subject. It is a candid autobiography in which desire, the unconscious, risk, and luck are its essential elements. Partly taken in Marseille, in the south of France, where Antoine d’Agata was born, these pictures conjure up an interrupted departure, obstructions, and emotional shortcuts. Here photography born out of a raw experience is also its forever-hedged condition of possibility. This tension between the self and the world, this impure relationship between document and subjectivity, are what Home Town ultimately affirms."
