French photographer, I discovered Asia in 2002 while I was making a documentary about Laos. I really had a crush on this country with his passionating culture. Since then, I have travelled on a regular basis, mostly in Asia. Therefore, photos became for me a way to share the beauty of nature and peoples I have met. Spirituality is a very important matter in my work, I’m fascinated by the profoundness of the ancient traditions, still present in the life of many peoples today.
I take pictures of scene with gives me positive emotion, it could be landscape as well as peoples. I never stage my pictures, I like to consider photography as a meditation where you are in the moment, ready to trigger when all elements combined in order to create a subtle order.
