Born in Burkina Faso, Vincent Fournier is a French artist and photographer based in Paris. Through his work Vincent explores the imaginary world of the future: space adventures, humanoid robots, utopias and technological transformations. He’s participated in group exhibitions all over the world and his works are part of several permanent collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Vontobel Art Collection in Zurich, to name a few. It was his series “Space Project,” 10 years in the making, which Vincent spoke to WePresent about: sometimes taking years to get just a few minutes of access to certain locations, Vincent traveled to French Guiana, Chile, Israel, China, Kazakhstan, Japan, India, Russia and the US to photograph space centers, classrooms, museums and observatories which tell the story of the past, present and future of space exploration. Despite having a futuristic aesthetic, the project took Vincent back to a moment in the past: being eight-years-old, and full of wonder.
