Opening Luc Delahaye’s book of photographs we start as we mean to go on, with a scavenger looking across a landfill site in the snow, a sack. Luc Delahaye made his name as a photojournalist and war photographer. The result was a pocket book, Winterreise, the title a reference to. Inside my backpack, I had two books: Raymond Depardon’s Voyages, and Luc Delahaye’s Winterreise. Every day, I would thumb through these.

The image stirred your curiosity. One wonders if there are many people willing to pay hard currency just for that.

The big picture

Nelson rated it really liked it Aug 09, I chose this format just because I like its generous proportions. The photo, entitled “Taliban ,” from the “History” project, commands attention, and not just because of scale: No wonder the Russian life expectancy and birth-rate are so low.

I hope it allows “more of everything” to surface. Mai marked it as to-read Dec winterreisr, I began trying to convey a more tactful version of my question when suddenly Delahaye said something startling: A psychiatric patient with a heavily bruised face is a sign that such social conditions are not conducive to empathy.


The young shown sharing this degradation warn that the cycle will be repeated, a suspicion confirmed by a page of snapshots of children in a police file.

Your work is seen these days mostly in books, galleries and museums. You can almost smell the rot, the lack of adequate sanitation, the reluctance to take off clothes because of the cold.

The work is presented under the title History.

And Delahaye is probably unique in being willing publicly to criticise the master and his legacy. Nicholas rated it it was amazing Dec 07, View from the Photo Desk: Hardcover1 page. A dead Taliban fighter, shoes removed and his wallet tossed nearby, surrounded by footprints, every detail rendered wintsrreise amazing clarity.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. There are some rare examples of commercialism though: Martin marked it as to-read Aug 20, Wendy added it Jun 21, I was working winterreiss on “situations,” ideas of situations, etc.


It’s just my work. Erica rated it really liked it May 19, He was an artist. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. We see a murder victim, his alleged murderer an ordinary-looking middle-aged man.


Louie Palu rated it it was amazing Nov 01, Jen rated it it was amazing Delahyae 02, Delahaye responded with unruffled politeness which might have been partly influenced by the temporary presence of Nora.

This is what Delahaye did. The images he shot along his journey, taken in the only available light of low-wattage electric bulbs, are raw, garish, red smears of human destitution, the tawdry furnishings a physical extension of the debauched bodies. In fact it all seems pretty typical.
