With Icônes, François Fontaine continues his exploration of the 7th art through photography. This series of colour portraits of great female and male stars, a pictorial reinterpretation of a film scene, was made from films projected on screen. In addition to the fascination of the power of icons, the chromatic sfumato that composes these portraits makes these stars even more timeless and mysterious. Their famous faces, which could be contemplated indefinitely, remain a captivating enigma that charms and haunts us and that François Fontaine leaves it to everyone to decipher. This is the hallmark of myths, legends and icons.
