Photographs

Originally from France, I grew up in the Paris region. Since my childhood I have a passion for nature and the desire to explore the world. PHOTOGRAPHIC WORK To raise the awareness of the world to the awareness of the protection of the environment (nature as animals), we are regularly shown photos of violent moments that take place around the world. This violence, of course, makes it possible to challenge the spectator to a certain reality of which we are not always aware, only by seeing violence on a daily basis we become accustomed to it without realizing it. The intolerable becomes over time more tolerable. That's why I want to challenge viewers in another way. Offer an alternative to these violent images that surround us and offer this time the vision of a wild and beautiful world that coexists with us. Getting used to the beauty of nature, showing what people do not see, will only increase the awareness that we must absolutely preserve our environment. To give you this vision of nature, which also remains my vision of the world and the moments that affect me, I spend a lot of time outdoors. I think that to be as sincere as possible in my photos, I have to spend time on the places that I will photograph. I like to immerse myself in the atmosphere of a place to understand it and relay it in the most faithful way possible to what it made me feel. This is why my photos remain faithful to the scene that I see at the time of shooting but also faithful to what she inspired me.
