About

Biography

I like to evoke the desire of elsewhere by questioning the notion of sublime.

I was a mechanic before studying philosophy. This dual training lead me to wonder about the paradigm of technological progress as much as about transcendence and the sacred.

Having moved to Arles, I discovered Photography, and from art lover I became an amateur photographer, I had then the opportunity to study at the National School of Photography.
