French photographer Françoise Fricot died last month at the age of 91.
The photographer had worked in a wide variety of fields, including fashion, photography, travel and film, and had been known for her expressive and sometimes controversial photography.
She was also a prolific essayist, author of several books, including The Girl With the Black Eyes and The Diary of a Woman Who Was There.
“Fricot was a remarkable woman, and she will be missed, as well as all of us who loved her, her family and her many friends,” said Jacqueline Kuehn, the author of The Diary, Fricote’s first novel.
Fricoton’s family confirmed her death Monday.
The family, which included her daughter, said in a statement that Fricott had suffered a brain tumor, and that she was resting at home.
She worked on a number of projects, including the upcoming French premiere of a new documentary by British director Robert Brault.
Brault has said that Ficot had “never given up” and that “she was a good artist, not a bad one.”
