Antoine d’Agata (France, 1961) is a Magnum photographer exploring the darkest sides of life, with drug-fuelled sex binges bleeding over the edges of depravity. Destroying the line between living and making art, his images are autobiographical, animalistic, and as horrifying as they are beautiful. D’Agata was in town to launch a new exhibition and online editor Katherine Oktober Matthews had the opportunity to talk with him about existence, agony, and what it means to have a privileged life.
