11 galleriesIf almost all of my photos are taken in urban areas, I do not feel like a "street photographer" in the conventional sense of the term. For me, cities are like the aisles of a large supermarket, selling theatrical scenes, in which I walk aimlessly until I come across a setting or scene which appeals to my senses or moves something more deeply in me. Empty places, beams of light, lines and contrasts allow me to create settings for short plays, where individuals often appear alone, their face or body hidden by the shade, or fixed in an enigmatic pose. The location where the photo has been taken does not matter that much to me. It could just have easily been taken in Paris, Tokyo or (…) as here. The priority for me, not that I can explain it clearly, is to create a surreal atmosphere, a time suspended half way between fiction and reality. But for an image to bring complete satisfaction in my eyes, it must also contain a humorous and inquisitive nod to our modern society or implicitly question the meaning of life. Could photography be “my immediate answer to a perpetual interrogation”, to use the words of Henri Cartier-Bresson ?
