There is an alien quality evident in the the sullen subjects of Delaporte’s photographs. They exist as shocks of heat against a cool field. Without this distinction the humans easily dissolve into inert compositional elements.

The figures are often overshadowed by solitary props that serve as signifiers assisting perception into fantastic possibility.

    more than anything, i dislike the compulsion to smile for photographs. as if life “were a big commercial.” also, i wanted to say that i was delighted to realize that bird is a piebald crow, and not a magpie as i originally thought. a piebald crow is actually very rare. these photos rock real hard.
