Entering the intimacy of the alternative Parisian scene, ‘Charbon’ portrays a new generation of artists – authors, photographers, illustrators, performers, musicians, poets – all of whom play a role in shaping the creative singularity. With contributions from 50 participants, the collection turns a voyeuristic gaze on the city’s nightlife and cultural undercurrents, opening a portal onto the risqué, the fetishistic, the hedonistic, and perhaps even the forbidden. All kinds of captivating personas emerge from the murky corners of the French party underground, posing proudly or caught in the camera’s flash. ‘Charbon’ also takes the form of a film, a copy of which is included with this publication.
