Bruno Fabbris is a French photographer from Champagne. His love for this practice was born during his art studies in Paris, where he discovered the work of several great names like Guy Bourdin, Jeanloup Sieff, Herb Ritts, Richard Avedon and Paolo Roversi.
Today, photography is his favourite medium. Fabbris is quite the perfectionist, and he develops all of his prints in his own laboratory. Having transitioned from film to digital, he never delegates any of his production to keep absolute control over the final result.
In his view, photo editing must not inhibit the film shots or studio work. The original image, skin, and light must absolutely be left unchanged, and the instant captured is essential for him. He is passionate about light, emotions, and the present moment, which is fleeting and never returns.
He started his career with black and white photography, and slowly moved towards colour, but his work remains rather monochromatic because he prefers shades of black, gray and brown.
In collaboration with fashion designer Nathalie Rutili, he produced the KRAFT series. Reminiscent of haute couture images, it presents costumes that are entirely made of recycled cardboard, burlap, and others, which elevates these unglamorous materials. Fabbris creates photographs in a plush atmosphere of exacerbated romanticism that are worthy of a forgotten era.
