tête à tête

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

i stumbled upon martine fougeron's tête à tête series, which she describes as "intimate portraits of two adolescent sons", via conscientious.

i can't help liking these images, even if i don't absolutely love them or find them infinitely interesting. they remind me of noah baumbach's style--his preoccupation with a new york upbringing and the hyper-maturation of these youths. (read the ny times on margot at the wedding--i felt the same way about this film as i do these images, i can't help enjoying the performances and being drawn to the characters, but the story doesn't achieve great heights.)

i also love this image--the delicacy of the face, innocent and feminine, framed in water.

there are few others worth looking at.

A very nice discovery indeed! Some of her portraits are of great sensiblity. It's a pity that I missed her exhibition at Paris Photo.
