Vincent Debanne, Battleship

Battleship is a photo series by artist Vincent Debanne:

“I show this gathering of yachts as a naval battle, because that’s what it is, a balance of power, a fight. Photomontage gives me the opportunity to reveal, to exaggerate this underlying violence, the violence of economic war.”

“My photo series always play with realism: the documentary side of my images is essential. It has to be plausible at first sight. That’s because my work is not fanciful but seeks to interrogate reality, often in a sociological and political perspective. It engages in a dialectical relationship with reality.”

Battleships for the super rich

Vincent Debanne uses image manipulation to turn luxury yachts into formidable warships and the bays of Antibes and of St-Tropez into theaters of war, while also providing a commentary on some of our world’s current economic, social and political issues.
