Antoine d'Agata is a French photographer born in Marseille in 1961.


D'Agata left France in 1983 to start a series of travels. He studied photography at the International Center of Photography of New York in 1990, under the tutelage of Larry Clark and Nan Goldin.[1]

D'Agata's work deals with addiction, sex, personal obsessions, darkness, prostitution, and other topics widely considered taboo.[2]

In 2001 D'Agata won the Niépce Prize for young photographers.[3]

D'Agata has been a full member of Magnum Photos since 2008. He has published more than a dozen books and three films.

In 2009 Tommaso Lusena and Giuseppe Schillaci released a documentary film about D'Agata called The Cambodian Room: Situations with Antoine D'Agata.
