I am French, 59, and have lived in Thailand for the last 20 years. I have practiced photography as a hobby since youth. My interest in photography grew to the point that I decided to leave a successful career in the United Nations to dedicate myself essentially to photography. Although my academic background is in science and economics, photography has allowed my to return to what had always been my keenest interest: philosophy, literature, arts and cognitive sciences. Readings of modern and post-modern theories of photography and art have not really satisfied me. So, although I do have some theories about what I do and want to achieve, at the end of the day, I hope that the images I produce can be appreciated without theoretical crutches.
