Exhibition Catalogue Dave Heath. Dialogues with solitudes, presented at the BAL, Paris (14 sept. - 23 dec. 2018).

 His photography is above all a way of bearing witness to his presence in the world by recognizing an alter ego in others absorbed in their inner torment. He was one of the first, in the 1950s, to express the sense of alienation and isolation inherent to modern society in such a radical manner.

Conceived in 1961 and published in 1965, A Dialogue With Solitude is one of that decade’s most striking books, capturing the zeitgeist in the manner of a photographic protest song. Dave Heath depicted the fractures and feeling of unease in the American post-war society of abundance, prior to the rise of the civil rights movement and opposition to the Vietnam War.
