2000 was the year of great changes, I left Campagne Première for long works in the former studio of the painter Corneille. A leaf had been turned not only with Marie Claire, but those I used to work with who were retiring.
For a photographer that doesn’t really exist, there are no limits for taking pictures, apart from physical ones.
I started working for Bloom with Nelson Sepulveda, the artistic director, then on an Old England book for Editions du Regard. A meeting with Maurice Nadeau of the Quinzaine Literaire gave a portrait for the book Louis Vuitton by Paul-Gérard Pasols.
In Morocco I photographed my godchildren, farm life and in contrast Paloma Picasso for Tiffany, in Paris a series for Agnès b.
In 2010 at Françoise Bornstein of the Sit Down gallery, I met Gabriel Bauret who proposed a book on my work for Chêne editions and an exhibition at the Dutch Institute, which happened in 2011.
I continue to take pictures, the iPhone arrived in time for me, we always have it with you and it is so light compared to the Nikon, which remains my favorite camera.
The life of photographers has changed a lot, no more light meters, no focus, no processing, Photoshop, maps and outdoor locations on Google, a photo or phone call on the cell phone, no more endless waiting in telephone booths .
On the other hand, the extreme concentration that a photo demanded in the eighties certainly brought strength to the images, looking at this perfection today it is hard to believe that they were not retouched.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude and thanks to all those who have provided me with help in making my images and my journey.
