Freelance photojournalist, member of the Studio Hans Lucas since 2018, I live and work in Marseille where I produce reports, for the press or NGOs, mainly around social and environmental issues.

I grew up in the mountains where I learned to read the poetry of the great outdoors and it is through photography and writing that I discovered myself after a career as a chef. Curious about the social mechanisms and humans that shape our society, I am interested in many universes and love to share and tell the stories I am going through.
For several years now, I have also been devoting part of my time to organising photographic workshops for underprivileged groups: social centres, isolated minors, addiction centres, young carers.

I am available for commissions of reports and portraits on the Marseille region and all over the world.

All the photographs published on this site or on my networks are available for sale, signed, numbered and limited to 30 copies.
