"My citizen and ecological consciousness, the driving force behind my photographic projects, was accompanied by a deafer aspiration, gradually becoming a necessity and a language, that of making the body play. First behind the camera, by following paths, then in front of the camera, as if to signify in the first degree a visceral or intimate commitment for my subjects, a way of taking a position. A way also of bringing play and humor, sometimes observes the world more as a philosopher than as a militant. "
Contrary to a quest for objectivity, I express my subjectivity fully, I sign the image of my presence, claiming the bias.
The photographic commissions followed the evolution of my work and it's now to the photographer director of himself that one appeals to find an idea or play with a situation. "
