Yannick Faure trained in photography in an
advertising production studio in the mid-90s,
with big names in fashion photography like
Patrick Demarchelier and Helmut Newton as
sources of inspiration. He worked as an advertising
photographer and sees in fashion photography
a close link with artistic photography,
which encouraged him more and more to
experiment in this field.
Later, the arrival of Photoshop helped to make
his work more successful and in tune with this
artistic inspiration. He works on the melancholy,
the dream, the mystery, pays tribute to
women by undressing them without ever
making them vulgar. In his portraits he searches
for an emotion, a truth borrowed from a
certain sadness but not without despair.
Now operating freelance for ten years in the
south of France, in Saint-Tropez, he still works
for fashion and advertising.
His works are frequently published inter
