Form does not exist without emptiness.
The relationship of the void between the built spaces is the base of my artistic approach. I draw from it an artistic and semantic material from which I build my graphic universe. It is not the faithful reproduction of the building that matters to me. While respecting its origin, its nature, its function, I seek new forms. I create tension through disparate shadows, through divergent lines to create a dynamic and harmonic balance. Architect by training, I apprehend the photographic medium following the approach of an architectural design. I analyze the place to soak up its essence and try to collect a small detail without ever losing sight of the unity of the whole. Positioning myself as an observer of space, like the gaze of a wanderer immersing himself in an unknown place. The “urban topology” series attempts to alternate and mix the instantaneous gaze as seen from above to encompass everything and the successive itinerant gaze of the one who walks through this space.
