"To be contemplative is essential for a photographer : walking, driving while listening to music are ways for me to get inspiration. I am looking for places which impart a certain power, with a strong and interesting light atmosphere, able to tell a story and be an invitation to travel through the picture just like a director who is looking for locations in order to create the best story."
A 'cinematographic eye' guides my photographic walks. I am driven by the will to bring the spectactor into a fiction where he becomes an actor himself, is not inactive, creating an exchange of glances.
My approach of photography is deliberately pictorial and emotional. When I photograph, whether it is through grime on the window or through water, I am looking for a materiality, a thickness one can only find in paintings.
For me, cinematographer and photographer are two passions that merge and feed off one another...in order to write a story with the light, like a return to the roots of photography."
