Are you curator? Art Collector or Art Gallery? Dynamic brand or a magazine? Contact me! Awards winner photographer, I was born in Paris, France, but I live in the Netherlands. Photo reporter (for press agency Sopa Images, Hong-Kong, &Polaris Images, New-York) and Fine Art photographer, I love to lose myself at random in cities to capture scenes of life, contrasts and emotions closer to the soul. Therefore, I use black, white and gray. For me, removing colors of life is like an actor, a woman or a clown, who removes makeup: only the essential remains, the truth, pure emotion. Likewise, all my pictures seem to come out of a black halo. As I see it, the world is dark, increasingly, and symbolically, it is as if I plunge a hand into that obscurity in order to extract some light. For me, a journalistic report can also be artistic and I am always searching to point out three things in my photographs: a message, a perspective, an emotion. I photographed the gypsy community in the south of France, young girls in Cambodia and even former soldiers of the IRA in Belfast but also rock and film celebrities like Depardieu and Bowie. My pictures were exhibited at the European Parliament, and Paris, Cannes, Boston, San Diego, Bristol, Brussels, Zurich, Genoa, Athens, Spa, Porto, and in Nigeria, South Korea & Sicily, and cities in France like Montpellier, Nîmes, Grenoble, Val d'Isère, Perpignan, etc …and edited in many international magazines in UK, USA, France, Austria, Russia, Monaco, The Netherlands, Thaïland, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Belgium, Greece, Nigeria… …and are on private collections: -Prince Albert of Monaco collection (Monaco) -Jacques Font collection (Perpignan) -Hervé Bazin collection (Grenoble) -St-Cyprien-François Desnoyer Museum (St-Cyprien) -Roger Castang (Perpignan) I'm also copywriter, author & graphic designer, with very good skills in Photoshop (16 years of experience) Buy Art!!
