Usual Heroes | Denis Bourges
Like so many B-movie extras, the sometimes twilight silhouettes captured by Denis Bourges come and go against a backdrop of mythical Hollywood. This film is bathed in an atmosphere of American literature, cinema and music, which gives all these “ordinary heroes” a universal scope. The words of Monica Rattazzi give them a voice, which gets lost against a background of urban solitude, while Denis Bourges, co-founder of the Tendance Floue collective, captures the body language in so many photographs brimming with melancholy.
