Coco Fronsac Creates Surreal Art From Found Photos

Share this:

French artist Coco Fronsac twists the past to create surreal, humorous, engaging and saucy montages. She scours flea markets, such as the one at Vanves in her native Paris, for old family photos and portraits from the late nineteenth and first half of the twentieth century and by gluing, cutting, coloring and juxtaposition, plays with time and technique to create something new and fantastic.

She says the found photos have a history and a soul. “It is for me to continue them.”

    The found pictures “have history and soul”, well not anymore since this arsehole drew all over them and claimed it to be “art”. Great way to ruin irreplaceable photographs from the past. Don’t support this.
