I studied photography and multimedia first at the "Université de Paris 8" and then at the "Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Paris".
Early on I worked photography as an art medium, exhibiting in art galleries, at the "Musée d’Art Moderne" in Paris, in the Beaubourg collections. I went back and forth between France and America. I eventually worked as an assistant for John Coplans in New York.
A grant from les "Beaux-Arts de Paris" allowed me to study at CalArts (California Institute of Arts), photography and critical studies.
My personal territory is art and documentary photography. I also always mix medias such as video and sounds, portraits and voices.
To sustain myself and my projects I have been working on movie as set photographer. I have also been commissioned by European and American magazines such as: "L'Equipe", "Le Monde", “L’Obs” "Liberation", "Geo", "Newsweek", "Slate", "City Life", "Arizona Highway", etc ...
Lately I have developed a series of investigative photo projects in America. Working on the Mexican-American border and in Ciudad Juarez as well as downtown Las Vegas or the Navajo lands. I have also published in France a book in 2014 about Legends, the flamboyant glories of American Burlesque. I searched all America for the finest and most famous strippers of that era, portraying memories and destinies. Mixing genders but always feminine, these wild and independent women were America’s freedom fighters of feminism. It has both French and English editions.
