Bouncing between fine art and editorial, capturing the real moments in life is what my photography is all about .... True "Shooting Star" of the British Journal of Photography, my journey began in Morocco, opening the doors of Africa, a continent that I always discover with happiness after more than 30 years. Armed with a Canon Eos 5 and inspired by the works of Sebastio Selgado, it was my work during the land invasions in Zimbabwe in 2000 that formed my first exhibition at the Zimbabwe High Commission in central London. Since then, I have had the opportunity to raise awareness of major international social issues, working with humanitarian organizations such as WaterAid, CARE and Médecins sans Frontières, and published on the covers of international newspapers and magazines. My photos and videos of To the Beat of the Desert, documentary film with the Touareg tribe in the deserts of Mali, led to the "Secrets of the Sahara", exhibited at the prestigious British Museum in 2005. Former resident of Marrakech With a stock of photos abounding , the internationally renowned designer, Jacques Garcia has selected my Moroccan portraits to align the walls of La Mamounia following the renovation of the iconic hotel. With that, I am selecting some of my favorite photos to make them available for purchase. Large triptychs and square panels, there are many choices to align your walls ... In French: Capturing moments of life and restoring them ... realistic or artistic my photographs have always sailed between different horizons putting in honor the complex social realities I was given to confront. A time rising hope of the "British Journal of Photography", my trip to the beginning of Morocco. This beautiful country has opened the doors to Africa. A continent that I still have and that I always discover with happiness after more than 30 years. I was first inspired by the works of Sebastio Selgado. Armed with a Canon Eos 5, my first "weapon" was the coverage of land invasions in Zimbabwe in 2000. Work returned in my first exhibition at the Zimbabwe High Commission in central London. I serve many humanitarian organizations such as WaterAid, CARE and Médecins sans Frontières. What could be more noble than raising awareness of the social problems of our planet by publishing photos on the cover of multiple newspapers and magazines. I am also close to the Tuaregs in the desert of Mali. I drew a documentary film "Au rythme du désert", screened at the prestigious British Museum in 2005. Having responded to Marrakech and having accumulated an important photographic background, the designer Jacques Garcia also highlighted my Moroccan portraits to align on the walls of the emblematic hotel "La Mamounia". My photos are now available for sale. It can be raw or artistically more worked.
