Charles Fréger: LuxCharles Fréger: Lux

Published by Veenman Publishers.
Contributions by Stephane Bern-Schlanger, Didier Mouchel.

This straightforward collection of portraits by Charles Fréger continues this brilliant young French photographer's study of European youth and social uniforms. Made over a period of three years in the tiny country of Luxembourg, Lux contains absolutely riveting, if deadpan, portraits of schoolchildren and adolescents in their various vocational and recreational costumes--including soccer uniforms, ballet leotards, chorale society outfits, military fatigues and work clothes. Fréger closes out this volume with a series of equestrians in formal and western wear, and a knockout study of burgeoning competitive swimmers. It is hard to imagine a set of more touchingly awkward portraits than the ones of the youngest of these girls in their metal nose clips, bathing caps and goggles.

Charles Fréger: 2NelsonCharles Fréger: 2Nelson

Published by Artimo/POC Editions.
Essay by Bill Kouwenhoven.

Charles Fr»ger finds his favorite portrait subjects clustered in social crowds, work teams, or collective structures or communities, and in fact those structures are as much his subjects as the people in them. Where better to look for the forces that draw people together and set them against one another than among children being coached to wrestle? United in purpose and set against one another on the mat, Fr»ger's subjects seem to struggle against one another in soundless tension, the squeak of the mat silenced, the smack of a body in the air anticipated--one subject in the process of being hauled over his opponent's back has zero points of contact with the ground.

Essays by Chihiro Minato and Didier Mouchel.

From the photographer who brought you wrestlers, now: sumo wrestlers. Charles Fr»ger has supersized his life's work with this large book of larger-format portraits of...substantially larger subjects. And perhaps a larger topic: Sumo wrestling, which dates from the Heian Period, some 1300 years ago, is not just physical combat but also a nexus of religion, history, leisure and athletics. While it has come far from its roots as an offering to the gods, and is known best in Japan as a professional sport, these amateurs display a reverence and a piercing gaze that marks them as preparing for a meditative struggle, a battle of wills and of eye contact as well as body contact. But first, the battle is to get big enough--some of the youngest wrestlers here have hundreds of pounds to go.
