Q: Construction of meaning: Describe, location (actual) and (social), the age, expression of the body (look for information in reference to the country where the photos where taken), light, etc, and articulate the meaning that you think this series has.
Denis Darzacq’s “Hyper” collection includes young adult dancers in typical grocery store corridors to construct different frozen pictures that are superficially impossible to see in the everyday life. The dancers are photographed in the air against bright, colorful aisles of consumer goods in the background, as their bodies are screwed in unusual ways. Darzacq takes inspiration from the brightly colored helmets he saw on the heads of teenagers as they off-road bike in France. He thought these helmets gave the young people a strange sense of energy and super-human quality that was achieved through the unexpected vibrancy. He reflected this idea in his pictures as the young dancers take on wonderful, flying positions, and oppose what is usually seen in the aisles of a grocery store. Flying through an aisle of goods and products gives extraordinary to the regular, and contracts the possible and the expected. Darazcq surprises the viewer who is inclined to suspicion of deception, by delivering an image that actually happened.
