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

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.
After studying photography in Chicago (Columbia College) and New York (ICP), Marcelline Delbecq (born 1977, lives and works in Paris) graduated from the Beaux-Arts school in Caen (France), then received a masters degree in curatorial studies from Université de Paris X-Nanterre. She was in residency at Pavillon in Palais de Tokyo in 2005 and was the French resident at Triangle in Brooklyn in 2007-2008.
She has gradually moved away from photography to focus on the cinematic and photographic potential of writing through installations, films, readings and publications. She uses both narrative and narrator (the voice) to create an uncanny world where texts, turned into sound, generate mental images shifting from description to fiction, from past to present, documentary to fiction. question.
