I was born in Strasbourg, France, in 1971. I’m a member of the “Collectif Argos” since 2001. Based in Paris, Argos groups together independent photographers and writers engaged in a documentary approach concerning transformations as well as social and environmental issues.
My work is aimed at social and geopolitical subjects. It includes investigations on harsh human conditions such as urban poverty in megapoles, climate refugees as well as socio-ethonological stories.
Regularly shown, my work can be seen at photography festivals (Visa, Arles, Vannes…) and in the French and International press (Geo Voyage and Geo France, Geo Germany, Flair Italy, Figaro Magazine, El Pais, Internazional, Geographical,…). In 2007 and 2012, I published two books with “Collectif Argos” : the former deals with Climate Refugees, the second is a portrait of France titled Gueule dhexagone the third Footprint is on energy transition.
