Franck Abd-Bakar Fanny
Born in 1970, Abidjan, Republic of Ivory Coast, he lives and works in Abidjan.
Franck Fanny absorbs and distributes the grain of women’s skin and the stridence of some men’s gazes. He subtly captures the rawness and realism of situations. Without misery, but also without idealism or cruelty. His pictures develop a pictorial naturalism that cuts social scenes as slices dripping with the juice of life. By night, venues appear as hallucinating crystal jewels.
