Ennadre Touhami - Black Light / Lumiere Noire / Schwarzes Licht - new copy
Enwezor, Okwui - Touhami Black Light is the first major monograph devoted exclusively to Ennadre - an artist whose visionary depiction of life and death has made him the focus of attention in international photographic circles.
By concentrating the eye purely on the subjects depicted, submerged in a background of deep black, Ennadre omits all superfluous, additional narrative elements. He persistently claims that he is ''not a photographer'', and the unusual methods he uses certainly resemble those of an artist more than those of a conventional photographer. His works are deeply disturbing and cannot fail to have a strong impact on the viewer. They take us aside into the shadows of our civilization and draw us closer and closer to the subject of birth and death - the extremes of human experience.
