“Portrait of my Generation” might be a somewhat pompous title given the simplicity of my project, but I couldn’t come up with another one. I photographed the homes of people like me, thirtysomething Parisians, to sketch a portrait of a generation through its relationship to culture, education, consumption, food and so on. Each photograph bears the name of the person who lives there.
As a 41-year old photographer, I’ve fulfilled my childhood dream.
Obsessed with light, I seek out beauty wherever it can be found: everywhere.
For me, photography is a way of looking at the world around me, to pay attention and be filled with wonder.
