As a French photographer and member of Collectif Hors Format, I am currently based in Jerusalem in Israel/Palestine. 

After training in international relations and humanitarian action, I devoted myself to photography. My documentary approach leads me to deal with social and environmental subjects, but it’s above all exchange with others that nourishes my work. At the moment, I’m exploring the faces of today’s agriculture in France and abroad.

I’m also interested in new narrative forms, combining texts and images in the series Au grand air produced with JS Saia, who lived in Bois de Vincennes. This photographic conversation does not try to talk about “the Street,” but rather to show a poetic side of this way of life that doesn’t prevent loneliness and isolation.

I work for national and international media outlets such as NZZ, Le Monde, Libération, La Vie, La Croix, etc...

I also lead educational workshops for various audiences with Dysturb.
