This series focuses on the residence Les Horizons located in the district of Bourg L’Evêque southwest of the city of Rennes, France. This residence is in the form of a double tower nearly 100m high and built in 1970 under the direction of the architect Georges Maillols.
The realization of this series was carried out during one full week, divided in phases of identification of the framing then in the phase of shooting. The main goal of this series is to play on the architecture, angles and curves of the subject to create very graphic and even abstract shots, where the notion of building disappears. The choice of shooting times with optimal shading for each frame increases this graphic. Similarly, the total absence of clouds in the sky combined with the whiteness of the building and the choice of a highly contrasting black-and-white treatment completely cleans the environment to focus on geometric shapes.

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.
