The Return of the Slapstick Papyrus - Francois Deschamps


This photographic whodunnit deals with issues of imagery and power within the framework of a picaresque tale of humorous intent. Photographing, in part, in Asia and the Near East, Deschamps upends visual and cultural preconceptions as his private eye, Rogue, confronts a culture whose rulers use images to control the world.
