Agence VU - Franck Brisset
Franck Brisset

Born in 1957 in Lille, France, Franck Brisset 's father introduced him to the world of pictures. Throughout his professional life, Brisset has maintained a foothold in both photography and video reportage.

Between assignments for television (France 2; France 3…), he has put aside the moving image for the still one. For him, photography is a complementary, not unequal, art. Brisset's travels through Russia, the Caucasus, the Middle-East, and his native France, have served as his inspiration.
