BIOGRAPHY
I like photography and make pictures since I was 13, that means almost 40 years. I spend my life travelling as my father and the fathers of my father. Photography was a natural way to transcribe my treeps to my family and my friends and it becomes my best writing. You can imagine I did a lot of. In 1992, in Tahiti where I was leaving, fire reduces my house in aches. I loose everything, even all my pictures. I can tell you it have been the drama of my life. This accident, some where, erased my memory and made me sick. Last year I was cured of this traumatism, bought two body and two lenses and leave to Pushkar. I spent three months in this village from november 2006 to november 2007, and no one day somewhere else, even in Delhi. Three months not only to take pictures, I met pushkari friends there, I learned the language and the writing, I took my time to see in-depth things. And I'm proud of it.
