Born on September 27th 1981 in France. During my studies in art and drawing in Belgium in 2003, I discovered photography. A couple of years later, I started to work for a small photo agency, Wostok Press, and I covered the political and social news in Paris. After being distributed by the agencies Gamma and Abaca Press, I joined the association Fedephoto to distribute my work independently, on international news: elections in Afghanistan, earthquake in Haiti, the Red Shirt uprising in Bangkok, the Kosovo independence, conflict in North Kivu, Southern Sudan independence, Arab Spring in Egypt and Libya, the first free elections in Tunisia and Egypt, the famine in the Horn of Africa… before taking a step back, and guide my work to longer stories and a reflection more documentary.
Since 2012 I launched into a long-term work in Haiti: I try to show another image of the country, far from the clichés often associated with the island, with a reflection on the consequences of international domination.
