Far from being a professional photographer, I am just really passionate about photography, constantly trying to improve my photographic technique and sensibility. Photography is probably a natural intersection between many other passions I have, such as traveling, exploring new places, slowing down, observing and spending time in silence in the darkroom.
My entire work is done using film (35mm and 120), chemistry and wet-printing. Film photography was love at first sight: the tangibility of the negative, the art of enlarging and the manual skills involved... A negative and print on gelatine silver paper are truly unique like the reproduced moment. It’s completely different from an anonymous and monotone sequence of zeros and ones stored in a chip made in China that can be copied indefinitely.
