Writer, photographer and filmmaker, the man seems without limits. He has journeyed throughout various photographic realities, from his first steps at La Ferme du Garet to celebrity hide-outs; from photo reportage to documentary film, and cinema where writing became essential, as way as of recovering lost time, after abandoning press-composed images.
The rhetoric of compassion has never seduced him, “creating images slightly common, calm, with no particular eloquence, but loaded with intention”. This exhibition, this passage, follows four threads: Homeland, Travels, and Pain and Confinement presented in dialogue.
