My exposure to photography started a few hours after I was born. Through my first 365 days on Earth, my Father took more than 2000 pictures (35mm slides) tracing his son's growth millimeter after millimeter, just like a botanist with his first plant.
My father's love for photography was rapidly passed on to me. I got my first point and shoot camera (110 film) as a Christmas present by the age of 6. At 8, my first SLR, a heavy duty, Soviet made Zenith was my favorite toy. Mom's kitchen table, aluminum foil rolls and picnic torches were the key elements of my mini studio. Apples, oranges, cucumbers, fish and tomatoes were my 'still-life'. I prematurely started enjoying the red lights of my darkroom when I was 10.
Various factors, travel and university frequently disrupted my love for photography until I called it back from rest in the very first years of the 21st century. Since then, photography is my weapon, my various cameras my loyal companions and the world my stage.
My view of photography is to capture the spirit and beauty of life, creating a story and communicating an idea through still pictures and the art of photography.
I have developed my own style of photography which is instinctive, daring, creative, plain but also powerful. In addition to artistic fine art work, my interests span the realms of portraiture, nature, snapshots, art and commercial photography.
I am based in Paris and London and travel frequently across the US, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
