Fougeron was born in Paris and studied at LFNY, l’IEP de Paris, Wellesley College and the International Center of Photography. She has been living in NY since 1996 and working as a photographer since 2006 when she graduated from ICP.
Fougeron’s primary fine art photography project since 2005 has been the ‘Teen Tribe’ series in which she offers an intimate portrait of her two adolescent sons and their group of friends. Steidl will publish from this series in 2014. Fougeron also started a new project in 2011 on The South Bronx Trades soon after she moved to the South Bronx. She is creating portraits of workers, interiors, machines, processes, and products of these diverse industries.
Fougeron is on the faculty of the ICP and has been a guest artist and teacher at Pratt Institute, NYU, CCNY and SVA.
