Through the World's Eyes, to unveil one's Identity


Artist Statement

Different style photographer, what I feel connects with what I have seen, what I have lived.... To live abroad, learning new languages, traditions, discovering other beliefs, religions, lifestyle....Witnessing other's life; Being a watcher, but also feeling.
From my personal experiences, I explore feelings and matters, existence basic issues : body, identity, human nature, time passing, death. I show what I see, or play with different process. My pictures are a blend of portrait, nude, documentary or landscape.
My projects are more and more brought to life through hand-made unique art books or different plastic art technique ; I upcycle, make, create, mixing matter to my visual work.
