It’s in your eyes in which I travel. Eyes are the reflection of the soul………. clear, pure, wide open souls. Burning eyes bright like a flame. Eyes that we meet by chance one day….…… unleashing their fire and their passion.
Why speak? One look is enough. Eyes are the guide to life…… joy, tears, sympathy, pain, happiness.
In the great light of day.... piercing, soft, sincere, reassuring.
Reflections are perspectives; formed of disparate patterns made from circles, lines, textures, vertical or horizontal schemes.……... the common theme is movement; of light, of time, of energy flowing and the progression of our lives moving forward........
When reflections are born, we are released from our bonds - what is the world but our reflection?
People (a project under construction)
People come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there. They can be your friend, your lover, a roommate, neighbours, teachers or even complete strangers. But when your eyes meet, you know your life will be affected in some profound way. Sometimes things
happen that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair. Everything happens for a reason……. nothing happens by chance. The people you meet who affect your life - success and downfalls create who you are and who you become……….. and even bad experiences can be learned from. Appreciate
every moment and create your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets. Most importantly, if you love someone tell them, for you never know what tomorrow may have in store.
A French national, but born in the UK, currently living and working in Oxford, UK.
Graduated in Combined Engineering at Coventry Polytechnic in UK, and after obtained a Masters in ‘Energy Conservation’ at Cranfield, UK and a Masters in ‘Water for Development’ at ENGREF in Montpellier, France.
In 1993, the door to the humanitarian world opened with a baptism of fire in Chechnya, Russian Federation. Since, working with different humanitarian organisations and as a Freelance Consultant, this led to the discovery of wonderous cultures and peoples in over 50 countries, where I have lived and worked professionally.
From my time at University in France, through L’Histoire d’Art, and an interest in different art forms – my passion for photography was ignited by a Sebastião Salgado exhibition at the Chateau d’Eau in Toulouse, where the beauty and harshness of the world that we live in blended into one. Passioned by realism, it gives me great pleasure to photograph the world and people around me ... it’s that special moment when the person being photographed gazes into the camera lens that brings me so much pleasure.
Inspired by everything that surrounds me - people, emotions, places, everything with colour and contrasts, I am fascinated by diverse cultures, people's way of life and their food. Inevitably this influences your work and combines not only words and poetry, but also our fecundity for life.
