I live in Saint-Nazaire, a city in western France next to the sea. I've been working in food distribution since 1994 and my training and international trade, an area in which I have never practiced, nothing to do with photography. I practice photography in general and
have been doing street photography since December 2012. After my separation I had the urge to explore the arts in order to escape and forget the worries of life. I tried sculpture and I also took photography classes at IP institut of photography. I quickly realized that I liked photography a lot and I devoted myself entirely to what would become a passion.
I think that to have fallen in love with photography this fast is not an accident. As a child (and still being one) I was always very lonely, contemplative and dreamy. I loved walking and observing people, for hours, as well as shapes, the beauty of my surroundings and found this sensitivity when I put my eye to the viewfinder of my camera. I became aware of the opportunity to put in the box all these images I kept in my heart.My inspiration comes while I randomly walk through the streets. I listen to music in order to isolate myself from the world and to be in harmony with what I am doing at the moment. I photograph alone because it is very important for my concentration. I am interested in light and imagine its possibilities.
What motivates me is my passion, my desire to capture a beautiful scene and share it with other photographers and those who appreciate my pictures. Photography is an act of love and of sharing, simply to give pleasure.
On a personal basis it is a need to express myself through photos rather than through words. It is a passion that demonstrates itself in the ordinary, a need to witness life on the streets. That is also the essence of photography.
