French photographer, after a first professional life in corporate companies. Born in 1975. Living in France between Paris and the Alps mountains.
Eclectic, poetic, instinctive: His photographic approach is greedy and free. His work is inspired by contemplation and observations picked by chance here and there and by the echo of his own life experiences.
Reality is for him a material for abstraction and for narrative fictions.
Since his first exhibition in 2011 for the Festival Circulation(s) of Young European Photography in Paris, his photos have been exhibited in several festivals and galleries.
What is more ordinary and characteristic of the office life than a photocopier?
Everyone uses it mechanically from pressing the start button to checking the result, always repeating the same gestures. Yet behind the uniformity, stand individuals.
It's a solitary task. One goes to the photocopier, engulfed in one's thoughts or focused on what needs doing. Sometimes a little break is granted or a colleague is met on the way.
To photocopy, to print, it is a story of duplication. Like the one and only window discreetly photographed over several years.
The silent and faceless scenes which take place invite to imaginary narratives.
On every return, it seems to call me
It is the evening, at twilight
Then I leave the house
I go on paths
On the look-out
My ghosts wake up
The river roars differently
Animals are alert
Everything seems different
Its majesty wraps me
Its beauty electrifies me
I come to you,
Winter is coming to an end. The sky is
low, the colours are dull, the atmosphere
The train is almost empty, the travellers
The city locks me up. Disconnects me.
The noise assails me. Darkness surrounds
me. Ugliness is insulting.
Merciless. No escape?
To get out. To leave. To undergo nothing.
To create. To bring about the shift that will
set the imagination free.
