About

Born in Nantes, France, I’m a beauty photographer now based in Paris. Beside my beauty and commercial work, I also realize more personal projects regularly. I’ve been working for the last three years on the photographic possibilities that science fiction offers, as much from a narrative standpoint as for its anticipations of the future (environmental disasters, encounters, scientific developments…).

I don’t believe in a universal real. I’m trying to represent mystery and to understand what’s happening in an image. The representation of the unreal is really important for me : the matter that surrounds us and what it may contain, that can’t be grasp, nor seen. All these possibilities are several directions that narrative can follow, suggesting to the viewers multiple feasible endings to the stories that were told to him.

I’m cofounder of Les Acanthes, a collective of six photographers working on onirism, worlds phenomena, and narration.
