I opened my photographic eye at the age of eleven, with a lot of curiosity and the desire to see the world at large.

Art being part of the family genome, and excellence being its code of conduct, it is through the eye that I chose to praise it.

Every time I stick the viewfinder in front of my iris, I feel the same excitement. A special intimacy is created between the object of my desire and me, to silently appropriate reality and imagination.

I marry the moments I encounter in my daily life, and question their vibrations with the freedom of my eyes. I become a whole eye, listening to humanity, its apotheoses, the panoply of its emotions.

By dipping my pen in the palette of lights, I tell the novel of life, to reveal its meaning and beauty.
