"What is to be a father? What is to be a son? What is link between them? Blood? Love? Transmission? Legacy?"

Grégoire Korganow have been taking photographs of fathers, from 20 to 80 years old, standing shirtless with their son a few minutes to younger or entered the fifties for the elderly. They are always close, often skin against skin.

Grégoire Korganow started to portrait father and son when he became himself father. He started to wonder if each son looks like his father after a friend point the similarity. Looking at those portraits, they are definitely similarities.

The facial figure, the gestures, the attitudes, help imagine a story but the nudity causes trouble and blurs the slopes, showing fragility.
