Gilles Berquet (born 1956) is a French photographer, and one of the driving forces in the European fetish erotica scene. He is also the editor of Maniac, a journal of Kinky fetish and bondage photography with a film noir feel. Carefully posed with obvious illusions to the subrosa fetish photography of 1920s Paris, his photos maintain a caught-in-the-act modernity.


Berquet has noted Clovis Trouille and Georges Bataille, both of whom were on the margins of Surrealism, as influences; but his principal influence was the painter and photographer Pierre Molinier.
