After studying photography, art and art criticism, Marcelline Delbecq gradually moved away from the image as such and now concentrates on writing. Ellie Ga practises a blend of narrative genres – memoirs and travel diaries – that pushes back the boundaries of photographic documentation.

Taking as their starting point Susan Sontag’s book On Photography (1977), Marcelline Delbecq and Ellie Ga embarked on a long-term words-and-images dialogue addressing films, books and artworks that have marked their individual trajectories, together with historical events related (or not) to the year 1977.

A compelling consideration of the way images circulate, this “personal, shared museum” will be up for reading and watching with the publication of Dialogue, out now on Shelter Press.
