Martine Fougeron: Nicolas & Adrien. A World with Two Sons

Text by Martine Fougeron, Lyle Rexer. Conversation between Martine Fougeron, Robert A. Schafer, Jr.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Martine Fougeron: Nicolas & Adrien. A World with Two Sons.'

A sensual photo-biography of two adolescents at the threshhold of adulthood

Nicolas & Adrien. A World with Two Sons is a series of intimate portraits of French American photographer Martine Fougeron’s (born 1954) two sons and their friends growing up in New York and France. Both tender and distanced, the book is a visual bildungsroman that delves into the intense present of her sons’ adolescent states of mind before they become independent adults. Nicolas et Adrien consists of two interconnected bodies of work, Teen Tribe (2005–10) and The Twenties (2010–18).
Composed mostly of photos taken at Fougeron’s New York home and during summers in the South of France, Teen Tribe explores adolescence as a liminal state between childhood and adulthood, and follows the adolescent’s interior quest and development of character.
The Twenties captures the period between adolescence and full adulthood, depicting her sons’ college years, trials with vocations and work, new friends and lovers, holidays and family celebrations.
Nicolas & Adrien is a sensual biography of two adolescents and a depiction of the universal processes of growing up to which all can relate.

Chris Allnutt

French-American photographer Martine Fougeron began taking pictures of her two sons (then aged 14 and 15) in New York. Seeking to capture the spontaneity of their adolescence, she shot them as they ate, smoked and dreamt their way towards adulthood.

In 'Nicolas & Adrien,' memory transcended and a mother's gift of love

In 'Nicolas & Adrien,' memory transcended and a mother's gift of love

"Adrien and Nicolas Dining" is reproduced from Nicolas & Adrien: A World with Two Sons, French-American photographer Martine Fougeron's critically acclaimed new monograph documenting her sons, 2005–2018. "In each gesture and expression, in each gathering and interchange, in each adolescent body, Fougeron finds innocence yielding to experience, naiveté to knowledge, plasticity to identity—or almost yielding, about to yield," Lyle Rexer writes. "We need to imagine these images 1,000 years from now, long after the fates of all the children have been decided and they are lost to time. They will exist always on the point of beginning, always symbols of what is yet to come. This is art's gift of immortality, transcending memory, and a mother's gift of love." continue to blog

Trust and revolution in Martine Fougeron's 'Nicolas & Adrien. A World with Two Sons'

Trust and revolution in Martine Fougeron's 'Nicolas & Adrien. A World with Two Sons'

"Nicolas Resisting" is reproduced from Nicolas & Adrien: A World with Two Sons, the new monograph by photographer Martine Fougeron. "I established a series of practices that enabled trust to build. First, I respected the moments when they absolutely did not want me around. Sometimes it was very difficult with my older son, Nicolas, because when I started the project, he was in full revolt against me. And it later became difficult with my younger son Adrien for the same reason: typical adolescent rejection of authority." continue to blog
