Born in Le Mans in 1998, I started photography 4 years ago and since then I have never stopped immortalizing my favourite subject: abandoned places. My passion for urban exploration was born when I discovered an old factory in front of a park where I had been walking with my parents since my childhood. I was very intrigued by the presence of such a structure that seemed sorry and forgotten by all. A few years later, I decided to infiltrate the interior and was simply amazed by this place frozen out of time and by the atmosphere it created. The discovery of places abandoned by man has since become my favorite subject. I spend a lot of time exploring and photographing scenes of abandonment in order to keep a historical record of these places before they completely disappear from the heritage landscape.

Through my photographs, I convey emotions and personal feelings experienced in front of scenes of abandonment; such as desolation or loneliness, which reigns supreme in these places. My goal is also to show the strength that nature exerts on these forgotten places by gradually invading them over time to the point of leaving only ruins. I also strive to show the beauty and grace that reigns in these places. At the moment, I am exploring wider photographic horizons, keeping the theme of architecture, abandonment and the play of light and shadow.
