Challenge prejudices: The documentary approach of photography can help understand complex situations and offer multiple perspectives to challenge limited narratives, often source of inappropriate and dangerous reactions.
Assess and demonstrate impact: Depending on our way of life, we have an impact more or less important on people and the environment. Through my work, I want to bring people to be aware of this impact and to measure it.
(Post/De)colonialism: Working for seven years in different African countries aroused my interest in the situation on the continent and its connections to Western societies in a post colonial era.
Understand Cultures & Societies: Traveling and living abroad helped me better understand how human societies live and interpret their environment, source of inspiration for my projects.
Analyse Humans: Humans fascinate me. Throughout our life, we create beliefs and fears that shape our own reality. The camera has a unique ability to capture in images how our body speak for our mind.
