Photographs

Photographer in the south of France in Istres, passionate about photos since my childhood and self-taught, I have a special attraction for blacks and whites with high contrast and for the monochrome. I work exclusively in digital. My work looks in two steps because I chose photos that in addition to their strict first interpretation, encourages the viewer to discover a subjective dimension of social, environmental or simply poetic. The choice of black and white is important because it gives more freedom of interpretation to the viewer. The choice of color or black and white do not depend on the photo but more of my feeling towards the photographed scene. On land, in the air or under water, I find a common interest in photographing my environment whatever the element.
