"François Besch quant à lui nous offre des exemples époustouflants d'esthétisme pur de sa photographie paysagère. Les promenades de l’artiste dans la campagne du Sud du Pays sont autant de prétextes à dégainer son smartphone et l’application «Hipstamatic» afin de saisir une réalité pittoresque de la nature qu'il mute en véritable poésie visuelle emplie d'émotions propres. Sa série de portraits en noir et blanc de personnalités artistiques luxembourgeoises et étrangères – Brandy, Clergue, Schlechter, Camarda, la muse Koska entre autres - est nimbée de forts contrastes et d'une volonté de capter la psychologie de chacun de ses modèles tout en dévoilant la fascination et l'empathie qu'il éprouve pour eux."
