Franck Bernhard

Born in 1972 - France


He was born in 1972. Franck Bernhard is an artist photographer. During his artistic training at Institut Saint-Luc (Tournai, Belgium), he is particularly interested in photography.

Camerawork, development process, color/black and white prints, Franck Bernhard wanted to master the entire process of creating his photos. He did a digital training course in 2000 and took his artistic project further with a long series of photographs, that enhanced one campaign to the next.

The creation titles leave no room for doubt concerning his serial approach such as "Fugues particulières" or "Variations" (1996-2000) which shows a "une histoire sans visage", the one of cityscape and suburban areas where billboards and signage are both the spotlight of the image and the reason for various changes.

Irrespective of his project ("Passages” or even “Regard étranger”), Franck Bernhard asserts himself as a composition photographer: the images are built up, the frame compels one to look, the view is frontal. Rhythm and variations evolve through shapes, contrasts, colors and finally the link between images. Thus, one can say that Franck Bernhard explores the "possibilités musicales" of photography; an art on the run in a major way.

His works can be found in the private collections and in museums like the musée des Beaux-Arts de Calais.
