Born in 1983, lives and works in Paris
My work develops through an exchange between photography and sculpture. I am trying to create a dialogue between the photographic image and the physical reality of volumes. My photographs and sculptures reflect my experience as a space, a meeting between shapes, materials and lights.

Photography is my main medium and is the essence of my work. I photograph to see, sort and reframe the world documenting, organizing and retrieving fragments of reality. I try to show the imperceptible and bring the other to see what he does not really look. I want to show the hidden interest of our daily lives without adding fireworks. In my pictures, this mainly reflects escheat, abandoned and the physical absence of humanity. But the imprint of man is the center of my speech, aesthetics regular abandonment in the center of my work.

Similarly, in my sculptures I use everyday items that I discovered almost by accident and without pre-filter. I use materials such as cement, plaster, fabric, wood, cardboard to create my sculptures. I try to introduce rhythm and changes in working on simple shapes the perception of objects and their relationship to space. The blank value in turn allows me to strengthen the work of the form, valued only by the light and shadow on the volume. It helps me to remove any questioning and to focus only on the creation of a volume.
