I started the photo very early. I photographed my surroundings by doing as many portraits as I did landscapes and using film like Polaroid.
I studied photography alternately, working in a photo lab where I practiced black and white printing on an enlarger.
Still on a work-study basis 2 years later, I worked in a photo agency under the name of Rue des Archives, a French agency that works with the press, publishing, communication agencies, internet and television, among others. The origin of the agency is the photographic background of the Agip agency. http://www.rue-des-archives.com/fr/login
In 2004, after my photography studies, I became a laboratory assistant at Photo Service. Then in 2005, I then worked both at KCS press as an iconographer (photographic press agency which covers people, social, political and artistic news, http://www.kcspresse.com/ ) and in a watch company information both part-time, then I spend full time in the information monitoring company where I still work today as a team leader, manager.
I work with polaroids, film, and digital. I also like to rework the images, even if some series remain raw, others will go through transformations, restructurings.
I do plastic work, especially on my Polaroid photos that I rework to take them out of their usual context and present them in other forms, formats or media. I like the reprint work on high quality paper, on which I add for some series paint, stickers, ink or any other creative technique.
The idea is to recycle the original polaroid, to dissect it and sometimes to cut it into different pieces to take it out of its context, its usual state and present it on ever more original media. I therefore meticulously research anything that could accompany and enrich the image.
My research is daily, I never stop creating and feeding my subjects.
It is the poetry that characterizes my images, suspended moments that I most often immortalize in black and white.
