I was born and bred in Lyon (France) and came to the UK to study photography where I graduated from the University of Derby.

My work mainly revolves around portraiture with assignments ranging from commercial to fashion editorials, backstage photography to private commissions. I favour the candid over the contrived, and mostly work with natural light. Taking pictures affords her the opportunity to satisfy an urge to reveal, remember, relate, exchange, project onto and inherently exercise a degree of continued introspection. 

My practice and current area of research are rooted in the notion of Otherness. Otherness affords a self-reflecting process which gives meaning to the world and one’s self/identity. As a photographer, I am interested in capturing liminal images, idle moments stripped from any stereotypes or assumptions and prejudices; tapping into a collective memory where the notion that we are all similar emotional beings before social constructs, resonates. I am curious about the way that we often cruise through life relying on precepts that at times are hindering and restricting our appreciation of the Other. Semiotics are of particular interest in how this offers scope to create challenging visual discourses questioning identity, perception and the representation of the self and of the body.
