I was born in Switzerland in 1986 from French parents. Photography is the way I share the stories of my encounters.
I discovered photography through dark room processing while studying graphic design at the London College of Communication. I pursued my studies at la Sorbonne in Paris with a master’s course in Modern Literature Applied to journalism, having right from the start the goal of becoming a photojournalist. While writing my final year thesis broaching war photojournalism at the age of Internet, I worked at the Magnum photo agency in the editorial department and the retouching department / digital lab. I then returned to London to attend a Master’s degree in photojournalism and documentary photography.
These experiences have had a huge influence on my way to tackle my subjects, trying to connect as much as I can with the people I encounter, avoiding being intrusive or voyeur.
My camera is my excuse to find myself in places where I otherwise would not have been able to be.
This will, has brought me in 2014, yo work as a staff photographer for the local newspaper in the pacific island of New Caledonia.
