Lives and works in the South of France.
His passages in different jobs and places, multimedia, performing arts, mountains and forests, but also the passion of the image since his youngest age are as many means which formed his glance.
After working for a while as a photographer in advertising, theater and dance, he was finally able to photograph for himself.
This long practice of photography allows him to seize his «moments of life» that he likes to capture during his numerous trips, and where he shows us his taste for the skin by a vision tinged with serenity. Whether through his portraits or his nudes in nature, he tells us in silence the importance of living in harmony with his body, his nakedness, with the earth. He gives the skin its limit, while demonstrating its meaty wholeness.
His itinerary leads him today to ask questions about these expressions and their limits.
The Taste of the Skin:
More and more my photographs are characterized by a return to the earth and to the mythological dimension of the world.
I am not looking for anything, things are looking for me, I feel them, they really call me.
This universe that I see triggers in me a desire to photograph. For me, this movement is there, it advances, secret, slow but inexorable, it is marked by a quiet strength of an incomparable dignity. The opposite of a fashion that we see immediately and that disappears at once.
With humility, with perseverance, with modesty, I try to explore the mystery of the body, of the flesh, of the earth to the silt. At the center of this mystery stands the human being, with tenderness, pride, sometimes with voluptuousness, but always in relation with the cosmos.
I photograph more and more in black and white because it is for me a transposition of reality, it is a vision of the intimate and the universal.
Merci à toutes et tous ces quasi-inconnus d'avoir bien voulu figurer sur mes photographies symboliquement authentiques.
Merci à eux de vivre leur corps et leur nudité sans détour, d'avoir partagé mon rêve illusoire d’Eden et celui de notre liberté sur terre.
