I am a photographer based in Reunion Island (a French territory in the Indian Ocean), and for a few years now, my practice has been focused on experimental photography. I really like error, randomness, surprise; they form part of my process. Photography, for me, means freedom to create – not just a list of precise techniques you must respect to obtain a “good photo”.

My approach today is based on questioning what Photography is through numerous experiments with analog photography. Camera, film, chemistry, sensitive paper ... everything is slowly dissected, observed, transformed, rewritten. A new language springs from it. Freed from propriety and definitively detached from its historical enlistment as a mirror of reality, photography can thus express all its intrinsic poetry.
