Bernard Faucon, one of the first to resort systematically to the constructed image in the second half of the 20th century, declines «an approach of time, that of life as that of photography, who investigates the sense of the stage setting, the deceits of photography in its relation to reality, its manipulation of truth and forgery, which confronts with the limits of the medium to push them away» (Christian Caujolle).

He is also one of the rare contemporary photographers to favor the editing process of Fresson, which is very stable and has a particularly soft execution.
