I am a New York based photographer and filmmaker originally from the Southwest of France. I got punished in high school for taking pictures of my friend during an exam in 10th grade. (I think I was already finished with my own test though). Picture here.
Ever since 1990, when I got my first photo assignment at the age of 18 for a dance company, I have kept this ball rolling.
After a Masters in Psycho-Sociology, I landed in New York City in 1994. I currently live in Brooklyn and dedicate myself to portraiture in photography, video, and film.
Paul Eluard said: "There is most certainly another world but it is in this one". I am convinced that behind this realism, there is a surrealism, a poetic and secret lecture of the experience, of the reality. I try to be sensitive to what is written in filigram behind the anecdotes, behind the encounters and their poetic correlations and what lays in this space between us .
I am also really interested by the uniqueness and the unrepeatable nature of each encounters with my "subjects" and how this will shape and contextualize my creative choices .
Beside being a dad of a wonderful teenager, I mostly enjoy reading , strolling and silence.
