"Art is the lie that enables us to realise the truth..."

The photographer and artist George Dureau has died at the age of 84. Amongst Dureau's admirers was Robert Mapplethorpe; "both of these men were attracted to the black body".

But Dureau "was a people person, not an aesthete like Mapplethorpe. His pictures breathe, they pulse, they are hot with the blood and sweat of the sitters who joined him in his apartment on Esplanade Street in the city where he was born..."

Here are some of those pictures.
