Datazone is the name that designates an imagined space, punctuated by immense cities or deserts, connected to each other by the promise of a compromised destiny. This terrestrial galaxy is ours. This is where Philippe Chancel goes, reporter without newspaper, informing his imagination, collecting vertiginous views of the future.
For fifteen years, he explored sensitive sites to examine the world and observe the most alarming symptoms of its decline. From China to the United States, passing through Africa and Europe, he denounces the often contradictory realities of our time – cynicism of the powers that be, ecological devastation, natural scourges, the spectacularization of capitalism, the control of individuals, religious and ethnic blindness, and territorial conflict. To make work in such a way does not correspond to any genre identified in photographic practices.
Philippe Chancel thus offers us an unprecedented exploration and constructive criticism of the world we live in.
