‘Metamorphosis’ By Frédéric Fontenoy

Words by Jo McTavish

IN 1989 French photographer Frédéric Fontenoy captured beautiful and transitory portraits of the human body within our worlds natural environment, allowing his creative drive to progress further than others inside a niche and forward thinking motive.

The series was called Metamorphosis’, which is an obscure and confronting collection of images that captures nude bodies in nature, that resonates with the work of French photographer Hans Bellmer.

 “[I was] trying to create a pre-human form in landscape without any trace of humanity…” says “Frédéric’. “Most of the photos are ‘self-portraits’. It was like dancing, 2-3 seconds in front of the camera, trying to create a pre-human form in landscape without any trace of humanity…”

Compared to the many artists we have featured recently, “Frédéric’ is more of a native since he was born in 1963. His experimentation, historical and vivid experience, has lead him to create various timeless and unconscious collections, that transcend your imagination.

An artist who broke barriers before our generation, and one who continuous to open our minds beyond our natural belief.
