FRANÇOIS FONTAINE

About the artwork

This photograph comes from the Silenzio! Mémoires de Cinéma [Silenzio! Cinematic Memories] series in which François Fontaine pays a vibrant tribute to the 7th Art. Freeze frames, extracts from memorable films from the history of cinema, give rise to visual emotions infused with “thoughts concerning memory, dreams, and fantasies”. The photographer provides a chromatic “shift” of the scenes represented, with the aim of creating pictorial and dreamlike images that “attract and hypnotise, owing to their sensual, nostalgic, and universal language.” FF.
