A committed photographer, she wanted to see reality face-on, the reality of age, of the excluded, of artists, and highlight a moment of subtle exchange: the portraits of Martine Franck resemble her. These few “face à face” portraits discreetly inscribe their place in time, and distil the delicate aesthetic of an attentive and penetrating gaze.
