Nicolas & Adrien. A World With Two Sons.

Join Martine Fougeron and Pauline Vermare as they discuss Nicolas & Adrien: A World With Two Sons, Martine Fougeron’s  latest book just published by Steidl Verlag.

In a series of intimate photographs, Martine Fougeron tells the story of her two sons as they grow up between New York and the South of France. Divided in two parts, Teen Tribe (2005–10) and The Twenties (2010–18), this bildungsroman in pictures explores the evolution of Nicolas and Adrien as they navigate between adolescence and full adulthood. By managing to be both distanced and soft, it gives us a universal tale about the process of growing up.

In English. Free and open to the public.
