To enter the pictorial world of François Fontaine, there is no way around the big screen and film.
Cinematography works with a collection of animated images, whereas its cousin photography is based on the static image. But both media rely on a common source: light.
Light fuels the universe. It braves this deep and anonymous space with its creative force. The look to the stars arises from every man's desire to discover the origin of all existence. Light offers an opening into this infinite unknown. It guides our gaze into the other world. Neither darkness nor light dominate in space.
The quest for light is an adventure, driving our thoughts and our imagination. It takes us on a spiritual journey, seemingly dissolving the limits of our existence. Paradoxically, this experience tends to affirm us in our individuality.
This sublime sensation can be found in the blurred images of François Fontaine, expressing his artistic reflections.
