To me, the camera has always been a tool of discovery and knowledge. If I am at first attracted by light and space, I then use the camera to discover and understand the world around me. By showing my works to others, it is this experience, both human and aesthetic, that I wish to share, bringing enlightenment and enrichment to the beholder and myself.
I was born In France, educated in England, then came back to France to join a photography school in 1988. I got my first jobs shooting architecture. This led me to travel photography (people, hotels, landscape). Thinking about the rapid transformation of the travel industry (15% yearly increase) made me start this ongoing project, The Leisure Territories, which I am submitting here. I look at how our leisure activities interact with the environment, and the place of man in nature today.
