Vincent Fournier

photographer -

Vincent Fournier was born in 1970 and lives in Paris. After graduating with a sociology degree and a Masters in Visual Arts, he obtained a diploma from the National School of Photography in Arles in 1997. His works are regularly exhibited in international galleries, museums and festivals, such as the Z33 Contemporary Art Center in Genk (Belgium), Rencontres d’Arles and Fondation EDF in 2012, the NetherlandsArchitecture Institute in Rotterdam and the Centre Photographique de Genève in 2013.
His work can be found in several collection such as the LVMH Contemporary Art Collection or MAST Museum in Bologne. Vincent Fournier's works are not only revealing his passion for science, technology and their mysteries but also witnessing utopia worlds as fantasized by humankind.
Whether he uses research made to reinvent living kind or studies made to project potential futures, Vincent Fournier always leaves a wide place to imagination. His pictures are poetic and very meticulous, which is the result of a long preparation in advance and a curious taste for opposites patiently fed with films and literature

Vincent Fournier has kept from his childhood the taste to explore uncommon and mysterious worlds, places where everything might be possible, imagined or recreated. His work is inspired by the combination of different forms of utopia and scientific researches.
The photographs are questioning the world and playing with the perception and reality. ‘I am always intrigued in the element of dream and mystery in scientific and technological research: observing the stars, traveling in space, producing living beings or re-programming them, reading thoughts and seeing the invisible..."
Vincent Fournier’s images are a blend of Jules Verne and Jacques Tati, Charles Darwin and David Cronenberg, and experiment with the fictional and magnificent potential of certain forms of utopia.  "My photos question the world which surrounds us by creating shady, improbable, sometimes inconsistent situations, always on the border of serious history and childhood dreams".
