Story & Message:

Whatever scares you, go do it. Then you won't be scared anymore.

From my project “Dance”

“We thought of life by analogy with a journey, a pilgrimage, which had a serious purpose at the end, and the thing was to get to that end, success or whatever it is, maybe heaven after you’re dead. But we missed the point the whole way along. It was a musical thing and you were supposed to sing or to dance while the music was being played.” - Alan Watts

With dance, dancing itself is the goal, there's no final point or destination. This is how life is. Otherwise, everyone would want to arrive at our final life destination as soon as possible. We can definitely arrive somewhere while dancing, as we're constantly moving with the dance, but arriving is not the point. It's the process of the dance itself that we enjoy while doing it.

What is the subject of my art?

I explore themes of emotions, relationships, self-discovery, and self-redefinition. Each photograph that you will see here will take you on a journey into the soul of a character and, at the same time, will probably make you think about the events and things in your life that have marked you the most and perhaps changed your life.

What kind of feeling does it bring to your home?

Peace and quiet. Strength and confidence. A bit of melancholy. With a bit of caprice, mystery, and fantasy. It will always be a gentle and quiet reminder that nothing is what it seems and that you always have to go deeper to perceive its true meaning.

How I work :

I choose muted tones, strictly curated compositions, clean, minimalist spaces, and lots of symbolism to convey my ideas. Each visual story has a precise plot but is always open to interpretation.

My Process :

Each photo requires between a week and several months of planning and preparation: thinking about the story and plot, planning the color palette, sketching, scouting locations, creating props, choosing the appropriate wardrobe, search for suitable make-up and hairstyle, then assembly of the set. In most cases, a whole crew is involved in the filming process. I never use stock images to create my art, I photograph all the details myself, on location. After shooting is complete, post-processing a single image takes an average of 5-7 hours in Lightroom and Photoshop.

About Prints :

I choose the most eco-friendly and sustainable materials to create my prints because I care about the world we live in. All works are printed on Hahnemühle Bamboo F paperineArt museum quality (290 gsm, 90% bamboo fiber, 10% cotton) and are Giclée prints with a life expectancy of up to 200 years. All art prints are hand signed by me (front and back) and come with a certificate of authenticity. All unframed prints have a 3 cm (1.2 in) border.

Framing your Limited Edition :

If you find a framing service in your area that works for you, I will be happy to help you choose a frame that will best suit your newly acquired limited edition print. This advice service is free and is available by e-mail or online messaging.
