I’m a father of six. Through my photographic work I celebrate and document my family life : a life on the edge of the world, where intemporality and the universality of childhood meet.
Day to day I create a family album that constitutes a legacy that I will pass on to my children. My work reflects our way of life, revolving around their childhood. My photographs will be the testimony of that. In a way my approach can be considered similar to the one of an ethnologist.
Though my work is deeply personal, it is also accessible, addressing human nature and allowing the viewer to enter my world and reflect on their own childhoods. Fed everyday and shared with the world via the internet, my photographic production has become a means of communication, leading to a questioning about freedom, nudity, being and having.

"I enjoy pushing the boundaries...[but] if I don't have trust, then I don't have an image"—a young photographic talent offers her thoughts on the female form and the fine line between innocence and sensuality.
Taken the moment amateur athletes cross the finish line of the marathon in Rio de Janeiro — these photos evoke the elation, thrill and exhaustion of pushing oneself to accomplish an extremely challenging goal. Bravo!
From thousands of feet in the air, the surface of the earth takes on a dream-like, abstract quality. These unreal landscapes allow us to shift our focus from the usual details to the painterly, twisting colors and textures that compose our wonderfully varied planet.
