I always loved the relationships with women : it’s softer but sometimes trickier.
It makes me think and evolve.

Hello, When did you start taking pictures?
I started a few years ago, in the street, with a small digital camera. I’m self educated, I never went to a photography school. After that, I started to take pictures of girls, nudes and portraits.

How would you describe yourself?
I don’t know and don’t want to. I prefer masks, plural identities. The important is not what I am but what I do. And I do beautiful things !

What do you enjoy about working with people?
The people I work with is essentially women, models or stylist. I always loved the relationships with women : it’s softer but sometimes trickier. It makes me think and evolve.
And I like the eroticism of girls.

Is there anyone you´d love to shoot?
I’d love to shoot God.

What other artists inspire you?
Some, painters, writers and photographers. Randomly… Georges Bataille, Daido Moriyama, Felix Valloton, Balthus, Guy Bourdin, William Eggleston…

Your favorite place to shoot?
Under the sun…

Where do you see yourself in five years?
Under the sun.

Thank you!
Thank you too!
