Hardcover, edition of 700 copies, design by Akina Books, Cyril Costilhes.

„Buried beneath its wild undergrowth and savage natural beauty, the Madagascan town of Diego Suarez hides many secrets. In 2003, whilst riding his motorbike home from Le Grand Circle Diego casino one evening, Cyril Costilhes’ father was involved in an accident that left him crippled with front lobe dementia.
As a result, just over 10 years later, Costilhes has returned to shoot the mysteries of the land that snared his father’s sanity. The French photographer recorded his findings in his new book the Grand Circle Diego – and the results are dark, twisted and startling. Opening with an ominous quote from Conrad’s Heart Of Darkness, it reveals a nightmarish new side to an otherwise idyllic town. Obscured and captionless images of discarded bones and facial deformities flicker to torn flesh and blood pools as Costilhes battles with his demons and revisits his father’s old home.
"Grand Circle Diego is a damaged dream, a locked in catastrophy, looped and dislocated. Infected. The book has no way out.  It's the product from my quest to make sense of my father's accident that took place in the top North of Diego Suarez in Madagascar in 2003. It's a lost port of cheap sex and power, the anarchic pirate outpost of Captain Missionan, an ex-colonial comptoir. The end of the world." Cyril Costilhes“
