NO STAGING, NO PHILOSOPHY
JUST THE EYE AND A PIECE OF GLASS
Born in France, I spent more than 25 years of my life abroad, among which 23 in Asia.
Photography came early into my live, with a passionate Grandfather who taught me the techniques of shooting and made me discover the magic of Black & White processing in the darkroom.
Addict to travels, having been fortunate to cross through Siberia and China in the early 80s, I have always been moved by a personal curiosity to discover different places and people, for trying to grab a glimpse of their spirit and memories.
Photography has a unique but universal power to generate emotion by fixing a signifying trace of the instant.
