Trained as an architect, I became interested in photography by déveloping a theoretical work on the design process based on the notion of "glances". Over the years, photography as taken a growing place in my work. Today it has become my main activity. My questions about the meaning of "being an architect" led me to put forward the hypothesis that beyond the exercise of a profession, "being an architect" was more of the activity of "being there". That is, a way of approaching the outside world, of looking at it, of being receptive to it and of living according to this activity. This way of being (in the world) determines the way of acting (reporting on the world) and influences the way I photograph.
My photographic production would be fundamentally different if instead of knowledge and skills acquired to practice architecture, I had been instructed in intellectual and practical notions to practice as a photographer.
In my photographic activity, this concept of "glances" finds a more usual meaning to extend, in a more general way, to a questioning of the notion of "point of view". A questioning that focuses mainly on the actions of deciding and choosing the object to be photographed as well as on the way it becomes the subject in the shooting, then in the production process.
Beyond the subject matter or the theme that characterizes them, the photographic series I produce are an opportunity to work on the notion of "point of view" in a particular and discriminating perspective.
