About me

Born in France, living in Montreal, Canada Images have always fascinated me.

Being able to manipulate them really brought me to love Photography. Indeed, I started my adventurous and charming photographer’s life by developing a lot of black and white negatives and as often photographs on paper were not so good but sometimes surprising. It’s right to say the shooting has always been the heart of my work but without the photo development laboratory step, my curiosity as well as my endless interest for Photography should not have been so strong.

For many years, I organized my work on two pillars which are the basis of my pictures’ production: balance and aesthetic. With a balanced composition and an aesthetic shooting or capture, I try to create my personal harmony through my black and white or colour’s photographs. I have to say I am an eclectic photographer in a way that my work isn’t limited to specific subjects but I admit outdoor photography is my favorite playground. Nature is so impressive, raw, colorful and changing that I cannot be unimpressed by.

Also, I couldn’t forget to mention influences from various artists from the Visual Arts world. Photographers Raymond Depardon and Ansel Adams, filmmakers Terrence Malick and Alejandro González Iñárritu through their various Directors of Photography and the painter and sculptor Edgar Degas. From them, intuitively they inspired and perhaps helped me to improve or adjust my work.
