Publisher's description: Patrick Faigenbaum (born 1954) is a Paris-based portrait photographer. He studied painting and drawing from 1968 until 1973 when he started to explore photography, influenced by the work of Richard Avedon, W. Eugene Smith and Bill Brandt. He began by taking portraits of his friends and family--such as his mother and brother, portrayed against white backgrounds in the style of Avedon--eventually documenting a wide array of Parisian society and Italian aristocracy. His portraiture of these years features frontal figures arranged to emphasize their relationship to their surroundings, while his portraiture of Italian aristocratic families references more historical painterly portraiture, pointing to the history of these families. More recently, Faigenbaum has also explored still lifes. Patrick Faigenbaum: L'Eclairement contains 90 photographs that represent the core of the photographer's black-and-white work, most of which are previously unpublished.
