Moved by my intuition and curiosity first, the camera is a way for me to reveal, to find correspondences with places and people, to better understand a time in life.
As a photographer focusing on the human and on the encounter with the subject, I attach an importance to the impact of an environment on our emotions and of our emotions on an environment. In that sense, I consider photography to be an interesting medium to study some psychological aspects of life, to understand how a collective memory can develop within in a group of people, a society, or a territory.
From the subjectivity of my perspective, through images, I invite the viewer to find resonances with questions that animate my work and that, ultimately, are intrinsic to existence as a human in society : questions of identity, belonging, roots and uprooting, cultural heritage, borders, love and solitude...
I live and work between Brussels, Paris and Tel Aviv.
