Son site reprends ses photographies de toxicomanes. Comme vous pouvez l’imaginer, certaines images sont assez dures. Son travail me fait penser à celui de Nan Goldin.

    Bonjour François, je te remercie vraiment pour les découvertes (notamment photographiques) que tu as pu m’amener à faire. Le travail de Jessica Dimmock est fantastique. Et grâce à toi, je connais le nom de la jeune fille qui tient un fleur face aux gardes américains, sur la photo de Marc Riboud en 1967. Il y a encore quelques années, je pensais que c’était un garçon (ah! les cheveux et la mode des seventies…).

    Amitiés. Jean-PIerre
