Photography is and has always been for me the ideal medium to express emotions. The particular energy brought by light and colour is vital both in my private and professional life. Light, as the only form of energy we can see, presents itself as colour. My photographs allow the viewer and the creator to explore feelings through abstraction. I see photography very much like a painter and I use my camera like a brush.
My world of photography has developed into four major themes: pictorial, kinetic, optic and urban traces. Each body of work takes on its own rhythms.
Progressively since 2011, I have become a more global artist; by extending - with the help of my team - the possibilities of photography and associating it to other media and design applications:
- In 2011, realization of my first monumental installation, Metamorphosis.
- In 2013, creation of my first sculptures, Crescend'O and Délivrance.
- In 2015, launch of my first functional design creation: Destination.
- In 2017, I started also to work with my team on larger architectural projects.
Photography will always be at the very heart of my work. And, with the spirit of a scientist, I enjoy pushing its boundaries ever farther and further!
