“It is not insignificant that Françoise Huguier’s first noticed and remarkable fashion photographs were published in the early 1980s in the daily newspaper, Liberation. As the same time as it was inventing a new way of telling the actuality of fashion shows, Liberation –and particularly Christian Caujolle, at the time director of the photo service – asked a few photographers who were not specialized in this field to show photographs of this revolution. Françoise Huguier was part of this adventure.
Here, it is suitable to talk about what was the invention of Françoise, “The Huguier’s touch”: this tilted and twisted frame, which is her trademark. The more spectacular the clothe is, both in its purity and overload, the more the eye goes to what escapes this exaltation: the hairstyle, the face, the eyes, the mouth, the hands… Françoise Huguier, by tilting her frame from bottom to top, has captured this geometry in the fashion space. And reserved it for this circumstance. As such, Françoise Huguier does not represent, she sublimates “. Gérard Lefort
