For fifteen years, Philippe Chancel explored sensitive areas of our planet to study the world and document the most alarming symptoms of its decline. Working in such a way does not fit in with any identified genre of photography, making “Datazone“ an invention that encompasses the most tangible signs of a predicted disaster: a traumatic ecology, chaotic deindustrialization, toxic setbacks resulting from modernization. From China to the United States, from Africa to Europe, the whole world is screaming, with no shelter in sight. Philippe Chancel is a classic photographer. Everything he builds confirms that the modern world has not kept its promise. A great narrative is made of assembled images that show a profound sensitivity to the world.
