Born in France in 1980, Raphaël Dallaporta has made himself a reputation for his scrupulous methodology and his commitment to documentary photography.
Putting "neutral" images side by side with texts on human violence, he triggers awareness of contemporary situations that often pass unnoticed.
In his personal projects the dignity of victims is a key concern. His work was first shown at the Rencontres: in 2004 Antipersonnel was selected by Martin Parr and went on to become a monograph as well as his next project Domestic slavery in 2006 and Fragile in 2011.
Solo exhibitions include Protocol at Musée de l’Elysée Lausanne, in 2010, Foam Amsterdam in 2011 and Niepce museum Chalon-sur-Saône in 2012.
A winner of the International Center for Photography's Infinity Award in 2010 and of the 2011 Foam Paul Huf Award; Dallaporta has works in the collections of the FNAC chain, the Maison Européenne de Photographie in Paris, the Musée de l’Elysée Lausanne, and Foam Amsterdam.
