A time travel, tribute to the History of Photography
This series is inspired by black and white photographs found in family albums from the fifties and sixties : anonymous portraits taken by my father during his travels.
So here are my own strangers, now capturing the photographer, or the viewer. All unified by cameras that have made History.
The capture’s instant, the click, is materialised by the movement of the blown hair, as those portraits could blow your own mind. Smile, they may get you !

In the realisation of a series, there is always a "before" to build the idea, and an "after", which extends the pleasure to find and even to discover the ambiguities which it contains.
Originally, photographer specialised in the domains of the architecture and the design, I dedicate myself since 2013 to an author work, more personal and original.
I also teach in Parisian schools of Art. These last four years, I had the pleasure to expose my work in France: in Paris, in Vichy, and soon, in april, in Saint-Tropez.
Sharing your work is also a confrontation with other stories, those of the viewers.
