vincent debanne

vincent debanne's dreamworks project is really interesting. he says about his inspiration for the project: “i was particularly interested in the imagery of the slovakian photographers of the socialist era in the books commissioned by the towns to promote the ideal city. in those books you would find for example a photograph of a young couple pushing a pram along a border of red flowers, in front of a public building in bauhaus style and then on the next page an enormous bulldozer photographed against the light, busy demolishing an old district to make place for socialist housing estates. the family of the future. a beautiful book, between fiction and documentary.” see the whole dreamworks series here and the rest of vincent's work here.
