In 1962, my family arrived in France, leaving Algeria all its attachments.
They never returned not.
I was born in Paris in 1967.
There twenty years, I discovered the Gulf of Morbihan with Delphine.
His grandparents settled there thirty years earlier.
Without realizing it, little by little, Delphine and I sent
this interest in the Gulf of Morbihan with our two children.
In each shooting Alma and Como are present such referents.
They symbolize the roots and transmission.
They do not, however, constitute the identity of photography
only the landscape is the essence of this work.
