I’ve always thought that a good film, a good series, a “great” work of art, unconsciously make you think about yourself and/or the society you live in. It’s something that moves you and almost acts like a psychologist.

And this is what I experienced with Euphoria this summer…

I’m often asked how I manage to exhibit my work.
And the answer is very simple: I apply for open calls.
Some artists manage to get noticed on social networks.
Yes, this is great, but let’s be honest: it’s also really hard to do so.
That’s why I decided to apply for…

If you like art, you certainly know the video “Andy Warhol eating a hamburger.” This latter is an excerpt from the film “66 Scenes from America”, directed by Jørgen Leth.

Jørgen Leth is a Danish filmmaker who arrived in the USA in the 80s.
There, he decided to create a…

I think we all have a place we fall in love with.
It’s like falling in love with a person.
You go somewhere without knowing that it’s going to be love at first sight and yet as soon as you arrive, you feel something very special about this place.

Don’t you think it’s disgusting to see that many artists earn more money once they’re dead? Resting in their graves, they seem to get more consideration than when they were alive. But we all know that it comes way too late.

If someone have told me 20 years ago that I’d become an artist,
I’d have simply…

While studying photography’s history, I came across articles about post-mortem photography. It’s a kind of photography that I’ve always found strange, weird. Before explaining my thoughts, let’s talk about post-mortem photography’s history.

Photography was born in 1839 (but it’s unofficially much older than that).
In 1839, thanks to Arago in…


I usually can tell whether I liked a film or not.
But “Malcolm & Marie”, Sam Levinson’s new film, is one of those films that left me confused. Because I liked it and I didn’t like it at the same time.

I’m not going to lie : what…

I started using social networks over ten years ago.
Like many people, I started with Facebook, then Twitter,
followed by Instagram.
At the beginning, I was really oversharing my life.
In other words I used to post a lot of uninteresting things.
As the years went by, I realized that these things…

Seven years ago, the 4th january 2014 to be precise, I was assaulted.
At that time, I was working on a photographic series for which I was taking pictures of myself each day, in order to create a real-fake every day life.
