About Me

Photographer based in the Greater London Area and the South West of France.

Who I am and how I started

I had my first attempts at photography nearly 8 years ago.  I shot self portraits as part of a self-imposed recovery programme. I was struck by a lightning and then I  had a brain stroke. I was paralysed from head to toe on the right hand side of my body. And I lost the ability to speak and to understand my mother tongue. It did not last for a long time, but the consequences did. I recovered completely though. But it took me years to overcome the psychological side effects. I had to learn to match my body image to my real body. I had to understand that feeling asymetric was just a trick of the mind. I had to stop cropping my photos and discarding half of my face. But I got acquainted with a wonderful world, a world with no language, a world with no worries, where only the present moment was so vivid and so alive.

Then I broadened my experience and decided that it was time to shoot other subjects. At this stage I learnt photography. I got a new camera and learnt the techniques and the skills.

Self portraits will be back, but this time I will be the model for the stories I’d like to tell you. I wrote a lot in the past and my notebooks need to find a new shape..

What I do and my interests

Fine art photographer.. ambidextrous, bilingual and synesthetic.

Some of my photographs are available as cards and prints, and I am a stock photography contributor as well.
I am also available for old photograph restoration and  for artistic portraits sessions.

I am interested in alternative cultures, alternative ways of lives or alternative ways of celebration ; nature as opposed to culture ; boudoir ; resilience ; the little intrinsic particularities that make who we are ; and so much more..
