Foc Kan, Night of the Hunter
It was a carefree time for some, the age of Le Palace and Les Bains-Douches, in this 1980s Paris where celebs would mix with unknown Parisian fauna. This is the milieu where Foc Kan started as a night photographer. After studying literature, he joined this world of futility and personality portraits done cowboy-style (meaning with a flash, in hyperfocal). But behind the ready humour the job requires, there's a real kindness. And beyond the images that often have the same fate as their models, and disappear into oblivion, appear the timeless images of bored girls, or of the homeless sleeping rough in the city. As in Charles Laughton's film, appearances are sometimes deceptive, and Foc Kan's flash leaves no room for shadows.
