Photographs

I was interested in photography while working in Africa for humanitarian NGOs. In 2010, I decided to continue my engagement as a photographer in the Democratic Republic of Congo. I do a documentary work on social subjects and issues related to human rights. I also cover the news as a photo correspondent for Agence France Presse until December 2011. In 2012, I moved to Paris and worked since then as an independent photographer. My work, regularly rewarded, is widely published in the French and international press. My work on the social consequences of copper mining in the Democratic Republic of Congo is part of the permanent collection of the Library of Congress in the United States. - I was interested in photography while I was working in Africa for humanitarian NGOs.
