Bernard Faucon Sold at Auction Prices

Photographer

Bernard Faucon (born September 12, 1950) is a French photographer and writer. He first established a career in art photography and has exhibited widely around the world.

Faucon was born in Apt, in Provence, southern France. He attended the lycée in Apt, then studied at the Sorbonne, graduating in Philosophy in 1973. Until 1977 he worked as a fine art painter, and thereafter discovered photography.

His photographic work expresses a love of youth and dreamy beauty, using saturated colour, natural settings, rooms, and often tableaux of mannequins. His major photographic series are, in date-order: Les Grandes Vacances (1977–1981); Evolution probable du Temps (1981–1984); Les Chambres d'amour (1987–1989); Les Idoles et les Sacrifices (1989–1991); Les écritures (1991–1993); and La Fin de L'image (1993–1995).

Faucon has won numerous awards from his work, including the Grand Prix National (1989) and the Prix Leonard de Vinci (1991). Since 1977 he has had nearly 300 solo exhibitions, many held outside France. He developed a popular following in Japan in particular.

In 1997 Faucon decided to cease his photography practice. In 1999 he published his first book of writing, La peur du voyage (The Fear of Travel). He is represented by the French agency Agence Vu.

The mannequins which he had frequently used in his photographs were acquired by the Nanasai Company and are held in its corporate art collection in Kyoto, Japan. In 2002, the Moscow House of Photography in Russia held a Bernard Faucon Festival. Two years later, he was invited to officially open the Moscow Biennale.

        Fresson print, 1980, signed, titled, dated 1999 and inscribed 'Tirage Fresson, petit format, No. 18/40' on the reverse, with label from Irving Galleries, Palm Beach. 14 1/2 x 12 3/4 in. (sheet), 20 3/4 x 20 3/4 in. (frame). Note: Théodore-Henri Fresson invented his unique printing process in 1899 and the technique has been passed down through four generations of the Fresson family. Fresson prints are still made today in the family's workshop on the outskirts of Paris. Initially used for monochromatic prints, the technique was eventually used to make the first color carbon print. The time-consuming process produces subtle, blended colors that have the effect of pastel and take six hours per print to make.
