Artist, lives and works in Paris.

I favour the tradition use of film, luminous prints over a sensitive surface and photographic objects in my photographic work. 

Portraits imposed themselves right from the start. Some of the first faces I took close-ups of remained like references in artistic questioning -Trois images de Dimitri-

Progressively, photography became the chosen tool for a personal quest allowing to meet Others. A procedure set into my practice to create a new degree of freedom: men and women come over and undress themselves within a limited and permanent space to leave a bodily mark, to run the risk to reveal their interiority and bare the mark of desire to my glance -Improvisations-

Simultaneously, I realised staging to open up a field of subjective perception, a fantasy recipient and a projection of the self -Allongés-.

Taking the Improvisations a step further, some encounters led to a place beyond the initial process and to question intimate memories -Récit-.

Recently, I staged situations of affective shifts in the shape of photo-stories from the pages of an outdated diary -Résurgence, des Rencontres et une Rupture-.
