Biography

I am a French independent photographer graduated in geography, philosophy and journalism. I have worked for five years for "Sud Ouest" newspaper in Bordeaux, France. In 2005 and 2006, I have made reportages about nomadic groups of Tuaregs in Niger and wrestling in Senegal. In 2008, I have realized a documentary photo-project about Gypsies, nomadic and sedentary groups, from Thrace to Mezopotamia in Turkey. From several years, I have been creating series of "chronicles" in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. In parallel, I realize a documentary project about the multiple forms of rurality in Charente, France. It is in this territory, where I partly grew up, that I do my work in the darkroom.
