French artist Bernard Faucon is a Renaissance man in the art world, having first tried his hand at painting before finding his niche in the craft of photography, then moving on to writing. His intriguing photographic oeuvre, rife with themes of youth, beauty and love, met with international acclaim and was shown in nearly 300 solo exhibitions around the world. His work has gathered somewhat of a cult following as well; The Japanese TV show Oh! Mikey points to his photographs of mannequins as inspiration (the mannequins used in his early photographic series, pictured below, are now in the Nanasai Collection in Kyoto, Japan) and scarves printed with his pictures are available at trendy Colette concept store in Paris.
