Join us for the book launch of ICP alumni and faculty member Martine Fougeron’s (DOC 2006) first monograph, Nicolas & Adrien. A World with Two Sons. Fougeron will be in conversation with ICP Alumni and Development Projects Sr. Coordinator Sasha Bush (MFA 2017) before a book signing of the new monograph.

Nicolas & Adrien. A World with Two Sons, published by Steidl, is a series of intimate portraits of Fougeron’s two sons and their friends growing up in New York and France. Both tender and distanced, the book is a visual bildungsroman that delves into the intense present of her sons’ adolescent states of mind before they become independent adults. Nicolas & Adrien consists of two interconnected bodies of work, “Teen Tribe” (2005�"10) and “The Twenties” (2010�"18). Composed mostly of photos taken at Fougeron’s New York home and during summers in the south of France, “Teen Tribe” explores adolescence as an in-between state between childhood and adulthood, and follows the adolescent’s interior quest and development of character. “The Twenties” captures the period between adolescence and full adulthood, depicting her sons’ college years, trials with vocations and work, new friends and lovers, holidays, and family celebrations. Nicolas & Adrien is a sensual biography of two adolescents and a depiction of the universal processes of growing up.

Copies of Nicolas & Adrien. A World with Two Sons are available for purchase in ICP’s shop. Visit our website for more information.
