I’m a french photographer. After graduating from University of Sorbonne, Paris with a Bachelor of cinema and media and a Bachelor of comparative Literature, I obtained a fellowship to study at Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, USA. I followed the coursework in filmmaking with the filmmaker Leslie Thornton. Back in Paris I began my photographic career as a freelance photographer making fashion editorial and portraits for magazines and newspapers. I also worked several years as a still photographer for films productions companies. I published my first book '2224 Kolkata' in 2015 with Peperoni Books, Berlin. I’m currently based in Nice, France.
