Introduced to photography by my grand-father at 6 years old… from my first Kodak view camera to the Leica, from the photographic film to the digital sensor… at about 5 decades and my passion for analog photography has never stop growing... I’m not 56, I’m 6 with 50 years experience.
Year after year, I just look at the world.
I seize what I see and I release the shutter at the moment that makes an expression, a movement or a story... I’m feeling it and I take it as it comes, I just want to capture the moment.
Most of the time I see the world in black & white and contrasts through my viewfinder. I believe black and white can reveal truths that cannot always be described but are often impactful, can suggest that we can’t see.
I don’t want a camera-computer autocorrecting everything: speed, aperture, distance and nothing else to think about.
Most of the time it’s an exercice of patience and I wasn’t very good at it... I’m getting better day after day and I mean sometimes I kept a little piece of it. It feels good because I’m capturing something where everything is great and even if there’s an imperfection, that’s ok, that’s not bad for me.
I love loading a film into my 6x6 camera and enjoy releasing the shutter, doing my chemistry, developing… and the moment when I look through the negatives... it’s so satisfying !
Live jazz performance addict, I'm still experimenting... Jazz means meeting others and sharing with them. Jazz embodies universal values such as freedom, tolerance, joy, tradition and innovation.
I am experiencing the photography, the music and I take it as it comes...
Let's take photos... life goes on...
Take care of yourself and stay all safe and healthy.
