Born in Montpellier, France, Fanny Latour-Lambert took to drawing and painting from an early age, creating illustrations which were recognized as the work of a prodigious young talent. In her early teen years, with a requisite dose of rebellion, she took a break from the pencil. Inspired by film, reportage photography, and painting, and frustrated by the lack of spontaneity and inability to capture an instant that drawing fulfilled…she picked up a camera for the first time at age 14. Drawn in by the work of Cristina Garcia Rodero, August Sander, Sally Mann, and Diane Arbus, Fanny too found herself drawn to storytelling and expressing timelessness and emotion with her camera, more than fashion iconography itself.
She started by shooting elements around her, then family and friends. She shot fashion for the first time with a friend who wanted to pursue modeling, who submitted the pictures to a modeling agency for consideration. While her friend did not capture the interest of the agency, Fanny did. By the time she turned 18, she had captured the attention of decision makers around the world – and fully dedicated herself to a career in photography.
Fanny’s work has been published internationally in magazines including W, Vogue Hommes International, WSJ, M Le Monde, i-D, GQ, Dior Magazine, Vogue, and has worked commercially for clients including Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, Lacoste, Sonia Rykiel, Chloé, Moncler, Soeur, Zara, Ralph Lauren, Bonpoint, and Nike.
