Photographs

46 years old, author Photographer.
For the last 14 years, I never tire of traveling the world with my camera in hand.
Without any staging, I try to come back to what is for me the origin of photography, the moment T.

When traveling, one has to build his images quickly. In one second the graphic perfection of a posture or a dream in a face has already disappeared.
Nothing before, nothing after...
It is thus in the middle that I try to situate myself.
For me, a photograph must always be aesthetic. It is for me its first definition. Then, when it is possible, comes its message. A beautiful image that tells a story, that makes you think...

The great spaces and the most remote regions make me dream...

For 8 years I traveled exclusively in Asia, which remains for me the most beautiful continent with its rich culture and its magnificent people.
Then came the discovery of Africa, land of all beginnings and where, despite its wounds, we can still approach the world in its origin with its fauna, so fragile with regard to human activities.

The photographs of portraits, street and nature but also the animal photography are for me my fields of predilection.

And needless to say that for me, the finality of a photograph is the paper print...
