I am a Swiss and French photographer born on the 9th of April 1975 in France. Apart from my PhD in Computer Graphics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and my work at the University of Lausanne, I've started to learn photography in 1998. Portraiture (started in 2001) remains one of my favourite subjects.
Elegance, simplicity, a strong sense of composition and emotions are key elements in my work. My images are often constructed as photo-series - something between fashion photography and movie storyboards. I often try to convey an atmosphere in my photos and mainly shoot on-location, almost exclusively in Lausanne (Switzerland).
I currently work in Lausanne, Switzerland, as a freelance photographer and graphic designer. My commercial work includes illustration, websites, posters, magazine layout, brochures, flyers, CDs and photos matching my own artistic interests.
If I had to pick up a sentence to describe my artistic research, it would be these words of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry: "Perfection in design is not achieved when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to remove."
