Trip In The Havana Streets
This is my exploration of the Havana Streets.
Born in France, I’ve lived in Spain and now enjoy a life in New York City.
A self-taught photographer, I am inspired by traditional black-and-white humanist photography, particularly the great masters like Sebastiao Salgado and Raymond Depardon.
Traveling around the globe, I create photo essays that cross art photography with photojournalism.
I attach importance to producing an elegant photo — une mise en scène — in a geographical, social and humanistic context, with an emphasis on the latter.
By catching the eyes of another, I seek a moment and a connection — in the humblest way — with the human soul.
Even more, I want these simple shots of everyday life to raise questions.
After my time in the United States, topics related to politics, migration and the diversity of the American Continent — both the North and the South — have gained particular interest.
My series the “American Election Night in New York” (2016) has been exhibited at Le Salon de la Photo (Paris, 2017).
My work is also exhibited in different galleries of United States (New York, Portland, Greenville).
I will be present next Summer in the gallery La Place des Photographes for Les Voies Off des Rencontres de la photo (Arles, 2018).
