Facilitate the meeting of foresight and chance.
Analog photographer by preference and by formation., my work uses traditional printing techniques, but also the pictorial art of colour.
I think that the real material of photography is a fleeting reality in transit in a stretch of time, and the narration of this reality plays a determining role in my interpretation.
The colour enhancement with watercolour ink of some of my prints, as well as the overprinting techniques used during the shooting or in the darkroom, allow me to integrate a large part of imaginary into this vanished reality.
These images are in fact unique works with multiple variations.
The essence of my approach could be considered as a poetic documentary.
The photographs presented here are extracted from my work.
