First work from Faucon. The book that won him the Prix du Livre Photo. “Bernard Faucon is a master magician of ambiguity. His photographic ‘mise-en-scene’ of children’s games and rituals [using mannequins and an occasional live model], like the salaciously naユve narrative that accompanies them, convincingly perverts the notion of reality. For the real in Faucon’s art is both the subtly delirious content of unusually memorable images and the heightened awareness of the feelings they arouse in us…” The inspiration for Oh! Mikey?.
