« Jean-Christian BOURCART is not afraid of the dark.
It is where he needs to travel.
He digs increasingly deeper into the “dark night of the soul.»

"In May 1992 a magazine sent me to do a story on the bordellos of Frankfurt. There, three rules apply: no women, no photography,and no filming. I wore a customized jacket with a hidden camera in the pocket.A camera that made far too much noise So I pressed the shutter and left in a hurry, coughing to conceal the noise of the motor.It was a crazy stunt. In1996 I again grabbed my customized jacket for sporadic visits to S&M and sex clubs, pursuing a dream of dissolution, harmony,and collective ecstasy."
« Viewing J.C.'s prints is like looking through a door into an underlit world where the stories are not explained or overtly articulated,
but remain secretive, left for the viewer to discern and discover.
It also seems to contain a quality rare in contemporary photography: honesty. »
