I am a criminal lawyer. At first, photography represented a sort of way-out, in order to illuminate my day-to-day professional life which might tend to be quite dark and distressful, as I stand alongside a number of adults whose childhood was not built on solid rock.
Gradually, I realize that there are actually common points between photography and advocacy. Playing with reflections to reveal was is in the shadow. Enhancing colors to make people realise things are neither not black and white, nor as simple as they look like. Listen to others and make their words become a defense, their life become a picture…
There are several tools to explain men destiny, Childhood is essential. It is often decisive in the positive or negative evolution of an adult.
I never stopped at listening at those that I defend in order to make their stories heard. From now on, I would like to communicate with pictures, not so much with words.
I want people to look at those I defend so that they can be heard. I am convinced that photography, just as pleading, can have a human impact and awake consciousness. It can also change the way we look at those who break the law of our society.
I have a photography project related to the judicial words I live in, involving lawyers, judges, policemen, prison wardens as well as inmates, former prisoners, female offenders, mothers in jail, inmate mothers and children, victim families…
I want to make photographs that plead . In this way, photography will not only escape hatch but also continuity in my commitment to the defense of the human.
