I was born in 1974. I received my first camera from my dad in 1993 and started taking a lot of portraits and concert pictures. After trying to have a ‘normal life’ working at the electronic department of a supermarket, I blew a fuse and took off one morning, deciding it was time to leave France.
During a long stay in New York, I spent my time skating and learning the basics of skateboard photography. In 1996-97 I started contributing to a Swiss skateboard magazine, Flat Mégazine. Since then, my photos have been published in many European magazines.
In 1999, I officially became team photographer for éS, Etnies and Emerica in Europe. I've also been working on some advertising campaigns for brands such as Sir Benny Miles, Element skateboards, Carhartt, and others.
I now live in Strasbourg, where I focus on printing and experimenting with different techniques and processes. I'm very interested in vintage cameras and old processes such as collodion wet plates. I also collect old family photos and union cases.
A few years ago I started a series of exhibitions featuring a retrospective of my work over the past ten years. More recently, I finished a show with the series "Through the backseat window." Soon, I’m collaborating with Jelle Keppens consisting of strictly medium format analog skateboard photography.
