Product Description


It has been said that all our knowledge begins with the senses. This is certainly the case for Martine Fougeron, who gave up a burgeoning fragrance-industry career as "the nose to the noses" to return to her roots—photography and family. What began as a personal challenge to reconnect with her creative life by photographing the inner world of her two sons and their teen tribe has blossomed into a long-term documentation of the in-between moments of daily life, from adolescence into adulthood.

Born in France, and brought up between Paris and New York, Fougeron says, "My parents came to the States when I was five, and we went back to Paris when I was 12, so my life has always been between those two Alma Maters." Her curious use of the term for a place of learning as a geographic reference takes on added significance given its direct translation from Latin: Nourishing Mother.

Realm of the Senses

Growing up in a family of avid image makers, Fougeron calls up a childhood portrait of herself aiming a tiny camera as evidence of her early interest in the medium. "My grandfather was a filmmaker, so he was always with his movie camera, and my father had a Leica and was always taking pictures," she says. "So, I was initiated by them. They would show us all the films and photos on big screens, which was rare at the time."
