Artistic Statement : In my personal projects, I always work in series, whether around a subject, a concept or a technique. It seems to me that a new project requires at each time new means, restarting from zero with a new technique,new camera, new format, new film and, most importantly, new influences. I am convinced that one never walks truly alone. Through photography, I would like to be reconciled with the world.
I often feel a certain tenderness for my subjects, an emotion like a taste of tears. This does not prevent a little humor and occasionally scorn, however I would like the viewer to feel, in my images, that astonishment of the heart.
