He is a professional architect who practices and builds. His images explore the city at night, with its culture of space and organization. He knows how to choose, in the physical sense of the term, his points of view, and he is sensitive to the ways in which lighting structures surfaces, and reveals, in the dark, the succession of volumes and how they interface. He uses photography both as a notebook of his sensations as he scrutinizes axes of circulation, pools of light, zones of shadows and spectacular flashes, and as an instrument of analysis. With his precise framing that eliminates useless anecdotes, he encourages us to look differently at cities and their endless growth, whose logic we find increasingly difficult to understand. There is nothing he wants to demonstrate, but he points with poetry, letting himself be captured by brilliance, what we cannot see when we are caught on the ground in the chaos of the city.
