Franck Bohbot: Light On – Neons of New York

Franck Bohbot: Light On – Neons of New York
International Photography Grant 2019

Brooklyn based artist photographer Frank Bohbot documents illuminated facades of small shops, restaurants and services.

Born in the southernmost suburbs of Paris, France (1980), photographer Franck Bohbot moved to New York City in 2013. He is a documentarian with an eye for the theatrical who found his way to photography by way of cinema, and although he turned his focus fully to photography in 2008, the formal and aesthetic influences of the cinematographic form continue to underlie his present work. Bohbot’s work inhabits a space between reality and fantasy, documenting and storytelling, every frame – to borrow a phrase from Nan Goldin – like a still from a nonexistent film.
