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.”
