Born in 1990, I am a French photographer based in Strasbourg who work regularly in Paris. Member of the international photographers’ cooperative Inland and Hans Lucas agency, I cover French news, create photo stories and nourishe a passion for street photography. Influenced by cinematographic aesthetics, my work is filled with poetry and humour. I focus on social issues related to youth and alternative cultures and have worked in Iran, Kosovo and China. My work has been published in French and international press including 6 Mois, La Croix, Le Monde Diplomatique, Le Parisien, L’Obs, Libération, Le Vif, Madame Figaro, Neon, The Independent, and Vice.

I also do commercial, corporate and event photography. In parallel, I organise street photography workshops and I am able to coach you in your documentary photography practice through the Inland mentorship programme. Feel free to contact me if you would like more information.
