Textuel : Bernard Plossu, Tirages Fresson


“I have been working with the Fressons since 1967, with Pierre, Michel, and now Jean-François: I like the matt side of their charcoal prints, which allows me to put my black and white photos with the colors in the same atmosphere. ” – Bernard Plossu

From the 1970s to the present day, from the landscapes of the great American West to the train station of La Ciotat or the gardens of Giverny, Bernard Plossu offers an intimate and sensory vision of the world, where man and the organic come together. This vision, directed by feeling, he translates through the Fresson printing technique. The texture and the very subtle rendering of the pigmentary process, invented in the same century by the family with the same name based in Savigny-sur -orge, answer perfectly the focal point of the photographer, anxious to keep away from the spectacular and the bombastic. The longevity of Plossu’s collaboration with the Fresson family over three generations is part of the work itself.
