I was born and raised in Paris, France.
Following a Bachelor’s degree in sociology at University Paris 5 René Descartes, I decided to learn how to use photography to show the world as I see it. For me, context is everything. I constantly concentrate on the fact that the subject is part of a bigger picture, and bring this vital element within the frame. My first love and interest is protest photography, but I am gradually shifting to deeper projects. I have traveled a lot around Europe, Asia, and to the U.S., where my american accent surprises quite a lot of people (and makes them easier to photograph). I love my camera(s) like my own children, and I'll never share custody with anyone. I'm attracted to the uncanny, the weird, the strangely-familiar-but-foreign feeling that photographers experience in the making of their work. But more than anything else, I deeply love People. Every single human being is fascinating, a deep cave to be explored cautiously, with a camera in one hand and a sociology book in the other.
