PERSONAL PROFILE IN PHOTOGRAPHY

Passionate with photography and graphic art since the age of 12, I had the opportunity to begin learning about photography with my French teacher who created the latter as a school activity. Since this period where only black and white photography was accessible to beginner amateurs, my interest in photography and its evolution has never ceased to exist.

At the age of 18, I hesitated for a long time between chemistry, geology and the Lausanne School of Professional Photography.

Thus, from the age of 18 and on, I studied the work of Jean Giono. I meet Jean Giono himself one time, which left me a memorable reminiscence. Since this period, I therefore decided to take pictures of Provence, with the aim of not only capturing the beauty of its sites, but also what Jean Giono saw during his long walks in the countryside at notably the harsh weather of Provence at that period of time (1900-1970). This means a dry, arid Provence, with men possessing hard characteristics, but also a Provence with the bluest of skies, a fierce and passionate blue mixed with the scent of lavender and the exceptional luminosity and clarity which have attracted many famous painters.

Since then, I have been developing my professional photography in travelling to many countries and study, show the cultural differences between human, landscapes and techniques.
