is a French photographer.
As a History of Art student at the Sorbonne, he developed a passion for photography and travel,
which he would combine over the following ten years during trips to South-East Asia. In 1997,
Fontaine was shortlisted for the Kodak Prize for Critical Photography for his feature story Phnom-Penh Jails.
François Fontaine, whose favorite themes are the personal journey, poetry and dreams, has created a timeless photographic oeuvre that draws inspiration intuitively from and in response to encounters with different events, cultures and peoples. Ideas are drawn from a combination of a lifelong passion for travel and the photographer’s artistic, cinematic and literary experiences.
