L'obsession des lèvres
I was born in 1973, and when I was about 14, my father gave me his old camera. Something clicked, and I’ve never looked back. I’m self-taught. I learned to use the camera by taking pictures and spending hours printing them. Next, I worked on a film set and became first assistant.
I was still working as an assistant when I had the chance to shoot my first editorial for Madame Figaro. Then, little by little, my network expanded and I started working. I live in Paris and have a six-year-old daughter.
In my photos, something pushes me to work more with female models. I like them to be free and strong, but I like them to be a woman above all else. Even if retouching is part of photography today, at no moment do I misrepresent their femininity. I keep what’s human about them.
