Fabien Fourcaud is a French self- educated photographer born in 1979. He spent his childhood on the French Riviera (Agen, south of France) and has been living and working in Paris since 2007.
His approach has been in influenced by his former responsibilities as Creative and Experience designer in the field of 3D and virtual reality.
Gilles Deleuze’s writings paved the way to his definition of a new concept of representation, and photographers addition to the exhibit of New Topographics, such as Stephen Shore and the Becher’s, weighted significantly on his practice of photography.
Fabien Fourcaud focuses on endlessly tracking breaking points as well as blurred areas within landscapes. He bears particular attention to non-places and likes to highlight the thin barrier between presence and absence.
The way he treats his images, which are significantly desaturated , gives the feeling of a near-picture and questions the very fine limit between real and virtual.
