I was born in France and I have a French/German culture as I live most of my lifetime in German since I am 6 year old. I lived and worked in other different countries as Mexico, USA, Italy. I tend to state and learn from other societies and cultures, with the focus of translating diversities, relations and local situations in photography.
I contemplate the Nature with enthusiasm, I marvel at all its strength, its essential instinctive creative power, its sincere lightness, the essence of its fragility - I observe urban infrastructures to dissect its robust details and exploits founded, planned from scratch by the hands of men.
I am registered at the German Journalism Association (DJV)
I speak French, English, German and Spanish.

Worked with: Die Zeit, Doctors without Borders Germany & Cambodgia, NGO OPAsha Cambodgia, L'Express Magazine, Artisanal Chamber of  Leipzig, Medien Stiftung Sparkasse Leipzig, City of Leipzig,  BWM Foundation Germany, Amnesty International Mexico, Ministery of Social Development of Mexico City, ONLYLYON.
