Vincent Fournier grew up in France on the coast of Brittany. After undergraduate studies in Sociology and a Masters in Visual Arts, he obtained the Diploma of the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie in 1997. His work is represented by a number of different galleries and is regularly shown at international art fairs. He has two books published this year: Brasilia, Éditions Be-Pôles and Past Forward.
His works are regularly exhibited in international galleries, museums and festivals, such as the Z33 Contemporary Art Center in Genk (Belgium), Rencontres d’Arles with his series Past Forward at the Grande Halle and Fondation EDF in 2012, the Netherlands Architecture Institute in Rotterdam and the Centre Photographique de Genève in 2013.
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.
