Francois Fontaine’s “Silenzio!” series is a tribute to the cinema, but also to still photography. His blurred images of classic movie scenes—from Bonnie & Clyde to Belle de Jour—speak of a cinephile’s nostalgia and an artist’s understanding of how photographs create memory. “The blur is…like a costume that makes impossible the immediate identification of these familiar silhouettes and evokes the different roles that made them charismatic,” writes Laurence Cornet at Le Journal de la Photography.
