Temporal photon correlations and photon count statistics of fluorescence radiation, emitted by an atom in the vicinity of a phase conjugator, are considered. The fluorescent intensity and the two-photon correlation function are expressed in terms of photon emission operators. An explicit evaluation shows their dependence on the phase-conjugate reflectivity of the surface. The variance of the photon count distribution for long counting times is expressed in terms of the Q-factor, which is evaluated as a function of the reflectivity. It appears that for a reflectivity larger than unity, the photon correlation displays antibunching and the statistics is sub-poissonian.
