It was when I discovered my first photo, taken with a disposable film camera, that the magic happened for the first time.

This photo surpassed my hopes, and this feeling was confirmed by the adults around me who said :

You are gifted!

I remember that the others, including the guides, were taking pictures of the mountain range, a landscape so vast that I said to myself:

"That will give nothing on a small photo that!" And considering the equipment used, it was often the case 

So I decided to photograph in the forest; an intimate space between the fir trees and the birches 

The light that makes the frostbite on the branches glisten. I was 7 years old when I went to a snow school in the Alps.

Afterwards, during my studies of architecture in particular, I did not stop making images.

From the period when we were waiting, with excitement, sometimes a week, to get the contact sheets or prints, to today, when the result seems immediate, several cameras have passed through my hands.

Then it's the ultimate confession to say that the cell phone also takes pictures, and that it is objectively (pun intended), less cumbersome.

I'm talking about results that "seem" immediate because in most cases, "smartphonic" photography needs retouching, framing of light, in short, an extra soul.
