Fanny Boucher

Artist Talk

July 18, 2019, 6:30 pm

The Phillips Collection is honored to host one of the world’s few remaining experts in the héliogravure process, the oldest photographic technique dating to 1826. Master intaglio printer Fanny Boucher of Atelier Helio’g, Paris, France, will be at the Phillips for a panel discussion about the history and continued relevance of héliogravure to photojournalism and contemporary art practice with French photojournalist Edouard Elias (who has collaborated with Atelier Helio'g on several projects) and The Phillips Collection Chief Curator and Deputy Director for Academic Affairs Klaus Ottmann. Moderated by Lely Constantinople, a Washington, DC, based photographer who studied the process with Boucher at Atelier Helio’g in 2016.

These events are made possible by a Sister City grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, The Phillips Collection, and STABLE.


Fanny Boucher will also conduct a hands-on workshop on Saturday, July 20.
