More Bernard Faucon

I've always been interested in Bernard Faucon's portraits and his French monograph provides plenty of examples of incorporating the fake and the real with bodies of water. His images are fascinating and disturbing with the subjects depicted in circumstances that could very well occur if everyone was a genuine human being. It's the nonchalant behavior of the living adolescents amongst the dummies and the former's occasional exclusion that make me look twice, almost believing that there is just one boy in the photograph that could be real.

Le Bassin, 1977

La Piscine de St. Sat, 1977

Jeux de plage, 1977

Gulliver, 1979

Bleu d'ecume, 1976
