born on 5th November 1976 in Pontoise, France.
From early on, my interest in visual arts oriented me towards photography, documentaries and film making. I studied photography and film in Paris – E.i.c.a.r. and E.f.e.t. – between 1995 and 1998. During my studies, I worked as an assistant at Canal Plus, and as a photographic technician at Chromogène Laboratory. At the turn of the millennium, I collaborated with Chromogène on several photographic exhibitions.
Since 1998, I also worked as a model with Next, Nathalie and Elite agencies. This career curiosity took me to Paris, New York, Tokyo, London and Milan. I had the opportunity to work with international brands, including Yves Saint-Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Karl Largerfeld, Agnes B, Givenchy, Yoji Yamamoto, and Martin Margiela.
I am dedicated to extensive photographic research. In chemicals, the effects of light on various substances. In physics, an optical device and the « camera obscura ». In philosophy, the light reflects the images we see and we embrace our own reality, a limited perception of an unlimited world. I explore new forms of performances with experimental technical processes. My pictorial language is awakening the poetic state of reality and the unconscious.
I have lived in Helsinki with my wife and our three daughters since 2012. I relocated my work space from Paris to a self-built «Atelier Laboratory» in the middle of Nuuksio forests in Finland.
