Photographs

Photographer-author, I have been working for several years on different media such as digital photography, film and old techniques in the technical chamber. A childhood influenced by the films of Charlie Chaplin & Buster Keaton, rocked by the voices of Ray Charles, Jacques Brel, John Lennon and Simon & Garfunkel, split between different regions of France and West Africa, influence today enormously my artistic practices. My chromatic impulses push me to work a lot on silver and old processes. I like accidents, unforeseen events, the discovery of photography revealed after so much effort. I like to mix old and more modern practices to combine everything in photographs that oscillate between chance and mastery.
