As a photographer, I would have loved let my image speaks for myself, like a mirror of excuses to not say too much. These few lines are here to explain the man and the approach, provide a quick preview of the who instead of the what.

I shoot models since 2006. Photography is my spillway, I use it like a diary, a book or a sheet of paper where I drop my emotions, my questions, where I search ... a lot and find ... a little. The projects I'm working always depends on a context and are linked to the current timeframe, deliberate or not, precise of blurry.

Up to 2011, my personal story led me to work on many dark projects, with a lot of meaning and often about duality and self-esteem. This was before. Before that major shift when my like reached a turning point and obviously my work. too. Since then, I'm working on positive emotions and causes I want to defend through my work: feminism, body positivism, acceptation of all as humans. 

I search, grope, try and eventually find: technics, approaches, contexts, more or less scripted projects, everything is an experiment. 

Lately, I decided to give more personality to my work and focus on a very little number of projects. I'm also French, even if I prefer writing in English and here are a few key point if you would like to work with me:

- I'm only working w/ collabs. TFP only, no paid work even if you're Beyonce or Monica
- It also applies to my work: I never ask for money and don't want to get paid.
- I'm not looking for a plastic doll: I'm looking for humans, come as you are.
- I'm located in Paris, and I can rent a studio if needed.

You didn't run yet and would like to participate in one of my projects? Drop me a line!

Get in touch?

Somewhere in Paris, France. ...for now
