Vincent Fournier (1970)

Vincent Fournier was born in Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) in 1970 and grew up in France on the coast of Brittany. After undergraduate studies in Sociology and a Masters in Visual Arts, he obtained the Diploma of the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie in Arles in 1997. Fascinated by science and technologies, Fournier explores the future of our societies and the biological changes to come. His photographs are between fantasy and reality, showing us the next innovations to come and what could happen to our civilization.

He is represented by a number of galleries and is regularly shown at international art fairs. Three books have been published on Fournier’s photographs: ‘Past Forward’, ‘Space Project’, and ‘Brasilia’. His work also features in international magazines including Wired and Wallpaper. Vincent Fournier currently lives and works in Paris.
