Franck Pourcel lives in Marseille where he is a freelance writer-photographer. His work questions peoples’ relationship with their territory, especially the Mediterranean. His photographic work, in black and white and in color, combines documentary with contemporary artistic creation. He pays particular attention to the obstacles of our time and the regions they damage. His work takes stock of the forms and ways of life that continue in a world ravaged by capitalism — to better understand the possibilities for reinvention — upon which our survival depends.
He is the author of dozens of books including Cahier #8, Filigranes Éditions/Zoème, 2019; Ulysses or the Constellations, text by Gilles Mora Le Bec en air editions, 2013; By will or by Force, Noailles in Times of Rehabilitation, texts and testimonies collected by Marie Sengel, Editions P'tits Papiers, 2007; The Little Sea of the Forgotten, Etang de Berre, Mediterranean Paradox, text by Jean-Louis Fabiani, Le Bec en air editions, 2006.
