Born and raised in Paris, France, I moved to New York in 2010. I graduated from the School of Visual Arts in the Photography department in 2015.
Since 2010, I am documenting the combination of our contemporary society and the historical city in "The Parisienne". How Paris is modernizing itself while keeping its identity of city of light. This project is still on going.
Lotus was shoot over a 4 month travel around Asia. The perspective of discovering new countries and cultures was the main aspiration of this project. Drawn to capture black and white landscapes, it inspired me to communicate the dependent and integral relationship humans have with nature. The contrast between nature and city is intriguing as people build concrete cities that never sleep yet constantly trying to embrace the environment and implement projects. People built cities that never sleep and have included nature in them. What I am trying to capture is a geometry between nature and modern cities. The negative space is important and allows me to stimulate the search for beauty in those opposite landscapes. I've came up with a project called "Lotus".
