“I looked through a lens and ended up abandoning everything else”, from Sebastiao Salgado
Born in Northern France, I lived in different places in Europe. I settled down in Toulouse during 7 years before moving in Hamburg in June 2016. I explore now THE vibrant arts scene here in the northern part of Europe.
My view about photography is for the photographer to show his spirit, as a writer can do it within his novel. But with a difference: Let the possibility for the viewers to narrate their own story. I take this little pleasure in seeing people introduce their stories within the shape I built via photography.
I mainly switch between portrait and scenic photography. In different nuances, both allow me imagining, dreaming in something well wider than what the eyes can see.
Although we must recognize that digital technology has brought a lot to the world of photography, I continue, even today, shooting pictures with analog camera. You may then see some of them, done thanks to medium and little format cameras. Doing it is a kind of therapy, where all of the unknown (seeing the composition only during the development of the film) is part of it.
“There are certain, inescapable images, forever part of our collective consciousness, that influence who we are, whether we are cognizant of it or not“, from Steve McCurry
