My photographic work is presented in the form of series that revolve around a lived space-time, during stays or trips for photographic purposes. For me, these moments are a break from the habits and constraints of everyday life. My photographs bear witness to the states of souls that pass through me, such as melancholy, doubt, boredom, fear and loneliness. They also reflect my personality by praising slowness, contemplation, silence, discretion and gentleness. The images obtained freely intertwine different subjects: landscapes, architectures, portraits, scenes of life or interiors. I take pictures with silver cameras. First, there is the aesthetic rendering of the silver grain. This granular texture surrounds each image with a veil of delicacy. Moreover, silver photography induces another relationship with time. In its process, the time of filmmaking is slower, and this slowness is like me. Also, there is this discretion in the silver material I use. Not very sophisticated, sometimes looking like a toy, I don't attract anyone's attention. I am neither seen nor noticed. Among other things, this anonymity gives me great freedom of action.
