Born in 1982. Lives and works in Paris.

It is through the installation and staging of found objects (trash) that I express my photographic view, while constantly working to find its tonality.

The staging of these objects is really the foundation of my work, the anchor at the center of such preoccupations as the notions of non-place and place, notions that are an underlying but ever-present theme in my work. 

The term non-place is defined here as a space devoid of history and the stratification of events. Having completed my education in a sculpture studio (atelier of Emmanuel Saulnier, ENSBA),the work borrows as the occasion arises from the form of installation or “photographical objects.

”These “photographical objects” (the Zugzwang series) are hypotheses that I propose about photography and the reality of its capacity for showing – its limits and its weaknesses. The documentary is a constant reference in the photography work executed in the course of my travels or taken from the video sources that I collect.

This medium that is at the source of my work is a language enabled by the use of the series. The series allows me to structure the development of this “visual discourse” accompanied by its uncertainties and its questioning. The making of a “good photograph,” meaning an image that has the capacity to withstand and capture the tension exhibited at the moment of the shooting, is an essential condition.

It is this, much more so than the actual mechanical recording of the image, that dictates my view and which, unlike the “pretty photograph”, is never far removed from the subject dealt with.
