Born in 1950 in London, Jean-Michel Fauquet spent 12 years in Canada, where he taught photography at an University. He settled in Paris and made his first exhibition there. His work looks more like oil paintings than photographs. His way of capturing light and shapes is very distinguished. Both his printing techniques and his use of specialized papers and supports make him something of an alchemist. Drawings, paintings, sculpture, and photography are all techniques that he uses in creating images.
