« Parisian Dreams » presents a Paris with a dreamlike and tragic appearance, offering a completely refined rendering, devoid of any human presence to focus on places and buildings. This reverie is born of water, completely smooth, with an immaculate appearance. This water, at first soft and silky, soothing, is soon threatening to spread in the urban space and engulfing it. Water submerges the city, it is omnipresent and infiltrates everywhere. A contrast is thus created between the form that water takes and the substance of the problem underlined, namely the impact of global warming observed in one of the most famous cities in the world: Paris.

My passion for the properties of light and optical sensors, concretized by my scientific studies, directs my photographic work towards a main axis: the imperceptible and the invisible, in the service of dreamlike and offbeat ambiances.
My first projects are based on long exposure work in urban environments, offering a refined and mysterious vision of places usually populated and agitated.
In 2012, I began to learn about infrared photography, a niche technique that allowed me to extend the spectrum of my photographs to a world invisible to the naked eye. I’m experimenting a lot with this poorly documented technique. I offer an alternative vision of my environment, borrowed from fantasy.
Thereafter, I work on ultraviolet photography technique, applied to the human body. I always follow the goal of revealing details that are invisible to the naked eye by revealing a vision that is both raw and fragile to the human being.
My photographic works also aim to question the spectator on the notion of perceptible and real environment and on his sensitivity to apprehend the world, confronting him with alternative visions of his environment.
