I am a photographer and I travel the world.
Here, I tell about my travels and I also share with you my photo experiences.
After studying photography at the CNAM on the scientific bases of photography, I entered the Magnum agency to take care of the promotion of photographers from 1978 to 1981. Thus a vocation was refined. Become a photographer, I join the ANA agency, cover many conflicts including the war in Lebanon in 1982, then travel through Europe, black Africa, the West Indies, offering through my photographs to be closer to men and universes that I meet.
