Antoine d’Agata is a photographer member of Magnum Photos since 2004. The photographs in the show “Codex, México 1986-2016” stand out for their immediate, almost brutal vision of a society taken by a spiral of violence. By reviewing the violence of a culture, through the degeneration and paroxysm of the flesh, the photographer tries to reveal fragments of society that escape the usual analysis and visualization of the social body. He exposes himself, sharpens his awareness of a world he absorbs and feeds on, without the slightest precaution or judgment.
