He was born in Paris, France, in 1969.
As photojournalist for press agency Sopa Images, Hong-Kong, and Polaris Images, New-York, he devoted much of his time to black & white & gray artistic photography, which he exhibited in many countries.
The human being, the urban, the organization of society and the weight of customs are his favorite subjects and he always shows three things in his photos: a message, a perspective, and emotion. This is why he doesn’t follow the rules.
For him, removing the colors is like taking off make-up from an actor, a woman or a clown: only the essential remains, the truth, pure emotion, sometimes crude but real.
Likewise, all his pictures seem to come out of a black halo because he sees the world dark, increasingly and symbolically. It is as if he plunges a hand into that obscurity in order to extract some light... There is always hope.
He photographed the Gypsies in southern France, little girls rescued from prostitution in Cambodia, IRA soldiers in Belfast, endangered animals in Africa, the minimalist landscapes of Northern Europe. But also also as a portrait artists and set photographer he photographed celebrities of rock and cinema like David Bowie and Gérard Depardieu.
He regularly works with NGO’s to talk about their actions.
His images have been exhibited in the European Parliament in Strasbourg, and in gallery in Paris, Cannes, Barcelona, Boston, San Diego, Bristol, Brussels, Genoa, Spa, Porto, and now in Zurich,.
And published in France, Great Britain, USA, Austria, Russia, Monaco, the Netherlands, Thailand, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Poland, Greece, Slovakia, etc.
He is as well a journalist and writer for various magazines in France and England.
He was a journalist for various media (NRJ, Fun Radio and Fun TV, in Paris, RTL / TVI in Brussels), and for various magazines.
Pupil of Francis Huster at the Cours Florent (famous theater school), with his friends Jean-Paul Rouve, Edouard Baer, Jeanne Balibar and Eric Ruf, and he was an actor and director.
