Auteur photographe

Bio

I was born Brazzaville (Congo), before moving to France, Paris. As self-taught photographer, I first became interested in the medium when my Big brother began taking pictures in Africa with a cheap Eastern camera.

In 1988, I began to study photography on my own. I later accepted a post as photographer at The Salpetriere Hospital in the neurological research laboratory .

In 2002, I move to Normandy (France)(Green grass land), taking more time to focus on my personal artwork.

Since 2004 I have devoted my soul and body exclusively to the creation of fine art photography . My subject matter consists mainly of landscapes and still-lifes, exploring both the outer reaches of the Normandy landscape, and the inner world of My studio, dreams and « souvenirs ». My images possess a serenity and quiet sense of contemplation that defines my unique signature style

I work in many areas: Platinum prints, carbon, gum contact prints and gelatin silver prints made from large-format to holga negatives. I regurlaly write artciles in french magazine about these techniques and give workshop at my atelier.

My photographs have appeared in numerous publications, national and international and are collected by private collectors through the world.

I and my wife, Evelyne, reside in Normandy with our 2 children.

May you all enjoy my photography as much as I enjoyed creating them.
